A historical restoration and implementation plan for transforming the Tudor Walled Kitchen Garden at Fulham Palace into an organic productive garden. Commissioned by Hammersmith & Fulham London Borough Council, the scheme involves the reinstatement of the original pinery-vinery buildings, the wisteria walkway and archaeological excavation of an original watering hole central to the garden.
We designed the whole new layout for the restoration of the Walled Garden, including the new knot garden, building layouts, the pathways, the avenues of fruit trees and the wall borders; every area with its own planting plan for fruit, vegetables and herbs.
The design has then been carried out by Fulham Palace and the garden was opened this year after 18 months of hard work for contractors, the head gardener Lucy Hart and some voluntary action too.
In 2016 the Society of Garden Design has announced this project as the winner of the ‘Historic garden restoration’ category.
