About the Drive and Courtyard

The Drive at Havoc Hall

The drive is lined with topiarised Field Maples which are a pyramid shape. Of the eight trees, two have not fared quite as well as the others as we have had some drainage problems on the south side. Pleasingly, the affected trees are now showing signs of beginning to catch up with the others.

The Courtyard at Havoc Hall

The Courtyard was cobbled with recycled stone that had once been a Lancashire town (probably Blackburn) road surface. In the centre are 4 Portuguese Laurel lollipops. These replaced the original bay trees we had planted in 2009 which fell victim to the harsh winters of 2009-10 and have proved extremely robust by comparison.

The West Side of Havoc Hall

On the West facing walls of the house, there is a Magnolia Grandiflora on one side of the house door and a Wisteria on the other side, whilst the north facing wall is clad with Photinia Davidiana and a Pyracanthus. The pergola covered pathway border to the north of the courtyard has Hydrangea Annabelles, Hostas and Geranium Wlassovianum, all underplanted with Orange Emperor tulips and anemone blanda for spring colour.

The pergola roses include Lichfield Angel, Compassion and Rosa Mundi.
