King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla are renovating the gardens at their Sandringham estate to create a biodiverse alternative that celebrates King Charles’s climate-friendly ideologies. The renovation includes a new lawn on the west side of the home and a new topiary garden, overseen by King Charles since late January.
Sandringham’s garden renovation is not due for completion until mid-May, around the time of King Charles’s coronation scheduled for May 6th. The team has laid out many of the yew trees and metal edging for the new beds on the West Lawn redevelopment project, which will eventually take shape as symmetrical areas.
The herbaceous plants will be added in the coming weeks, just in time for the most colorful months on the calendar. The garden was previously used for crops as part of the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign in the Second World War and is now being renovated to accentuate the ‘decorative aspect’ of the land while increasing naturalistic planting and biodiversity. King Charles’s dedication to sustainability is evident in his design of a sustainable garden in Highgrove House, which features rare heirloom seeds, flowers, and trees.
Sandringham Estate has partnered with the environmental conservation organization Ecologi to fund global tree planting and climate change projects, showing their commitment to eco-friendly ideas.The new topiary garden will not only enhance the decorative aspect of the land but also increase naturalistic planting and improve biodiversity.
With the renovation set to be completed around the time of his coronation, it is a fitting tribute to his reign and his climate-friendly ideologies. It is heartening to see the royal family taking such proactive steps to combat climate change and promote eco-friendly practices, and we look forward to seeing the beautiful new gardens at Sandringham in the near future.
