The 0.6ha garden is being built by Frosts Landscape Construction, of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, and has been designed by landscape architect and garden designer Robert Myers and his practice Robert Myers Associates.
Herefordshire-based Robert Myers Associates won a design competition run by charity Historic Royal Palaces in 2012.
The vision for the area, built on the former tilt yard within the palace grounds, was that it should be a naturalistic play garden, rather than playground, which would reflect the palace’s magical quality and allow children to learn about its history through play.
The project has also been a success for Aggregate Industries, based in Leicestershire, which secured its first order with Historic Royal Palaces for 2,000 units of the Charcon range of StoneMaster flag and block paving, which it says will cover 400 sq m of the garden.
The work is expected to complete early next year.
