The Gardens

The garden is designed in greatly contrasting planting styles with the front concrete dais as a Potted Cottage garden whilst the sizeable back garden has a distinctly Japanese flavour. This in turn, connects to Woodland on the south side; firstly a clearing of Japanese woodlanders, with clapper gate leading into native woodland.

Voluptuous and haphazard is the Cottage garden planting style with floriferous, seasonal plants especially annuals and herbaceous perennials busily intermixed with old-fashioned climbers and shrubs

Japanese garden plantings rely on subtle differences in texture in soothing shades of green. Architectural forms are important and well-placed, restrained amounts of colour that mark the seasons .

Shade and shelter is the hallmark of the Woodland garden planting style dominated by evergreens and deciduous autumn colour from trees and shrubs, combined with wildflowers and spring bulbs
