The Holme in Regents Park, London

Masterplan and Detailed Design of large lakeside Villa Gardens in Regents Park

At just over 5 acres, The Holme is one of the largest private gardens in London and forms a central part of the Grade I registered landscape of Regent’s Park. The original villa, designed by Decimus Burton survived but its gardens, designed by J. C. Loudon, had been lost.

We prepared a Masterplan that was inspired by the original Regency garden layout and which included lavishly planted, mounded, island beds and serpentine paths. The design also included a new rock garden, complete with grotto and waterfall.

We developed detailed designs and specifications and then co-ordinated and managed the implementation of this design on site. Once completed, we prepared a management plan and organised the ongoing day to day maintenance of the gardens as they matured.
