Crecy Close Garden

Small is no limit to big ideas, as shown by John and Anne Massey's pocket-handkerchief-sized garden. ‘When a small space is divided up so as to create hidden bits to explore, it has the effect of making the garden seem larger because it is varied and interesting,' they explain. ‘It’s tempting with a small plot to want to see it all from the house, but an element of surprise adds another dimension.' However, the flowing design did not happen by accident. ‘I spent a winter planning it on paper, before we’d even moved in,’ admits Anne. Whilst the front centres on a paved courtyard, the back hinges on a strong structure in the form of a high, curved pergola and wooden arc. The rest of the design dropped into place.
