The extensive lawns are mainly to the South and West of the Estate. They are perfect for lazy sunny afternoon picnics, an early morning jog or a peaceful walk with the family pooch. From the lawns it is the blocks of colour from the mature shrubs and and substantial trees that catch the eye. The secure metal railings to the boundaries are continuous surrounding the Estate, this contributes greatly to the security of Charters, and these fences are lined with established laurel hedges and mature rhododendron. The more formal areas of lawn are edged with raised planters with beautifully sculptured box hedging.
