Greenhouse Court, Round Court and Green Lane
Greenhouse Court is the first area you enter at Wychfield having visited the Porters Lodge. It is designed to reflect the arts and crafts style of nearby houses with its formal topiary pieces and lawns. An inner garden of mixed planting, with a more relaxed and secluded feel, provides a pleasant place to sit and rest. The Greenhouse is located on the sunny south east face of the courtyard, both adding to the visual design of the gardens while also providing a location for the Gardeners to grow and care for plants used in many areas of the college gardens.
Round Court is nestled between Greenhouse Court and Storey's Way, a square area with a centrally located round lawn. This whole area is a real suntrap, providing ideal growing conditions in the beds for many plants originating from warmer climes.
Continuing on from Round Court or Greenhouse Court, you will come upon Green Lane, which runs between Storey's Way and a mature tree belt. This long linear area flanked by two elegant terraced buildings visually reflects a well tended Cambridge street, with grass replacing the road and repeat planting along its length representing what would be the front gardens. Grasses, Roses, Hebes and Lavender along with specimen shrubs are used in such a way that they compliment the architecture of the surrounding buildings, which were completed in 2006.
