24/09/2021 Planning Permission

We are very pleased to have received planning permission for this potting shed which will form an essential part of a productive garden. The garden has become an integral part of our client’s lives and this building will not only be used for potting but also seed propagation, over wintering plants, tool storage and housing compost bins.

The scheme will allow the building to nestle quietly into the garden with a curved pergola following the curvature of the yew hedge which encircles the garden beds. High quality, low embodied carbon materials will be used with the use for energy reduced by large glazing set back behind a pergola. The pergola will help reduce overheating in summer with the glazing helping to  retain warmth in winter.
