The garden is situated behind a single storey domicile with a high mixed native hedge all along the East border. There is raised level, once grassed but converted to a Gravel Garden triangulated by 3 Shrubbery beds. These are named ‘First’, ‘Second’ and ‘Far sight’ ‘according to how they are viewed on first entering the garden. Stone steps separate the first two. A greenhouse backs on to the Far shrubbery bed and this will be occluded by a timber sunburst screen. All three shrubberies are to be infilled with perennials and ground cover plants:
Unlinked plants = wishlist; blue linked ones = resident ( detailed in separate pages)
Two metal trellises partition the Gravel Garden approximately one third along, and create a pathway between them. The trellises will feature potted plants; perennials for seasonal interest with one or two trees* or shrubs for structure. (The potted trees will eventually be planted elsewhere when they grow too big). To the right of these is a small pond and garden area backing on to one side of a Teahouse styled gazebo:
Beyond here the garden slopes steeply away to the West, with a cascade and garden beds either side. The Teahouse gazebo overlooks these and a small paved path runs in front with a drier, sunnier edging area lying above the cascade gardens
To the left of the Teahouse, the garden slope is divided in the middle with stone steps separating vegetable beds and a small fruit garden.
