Garden of Rooms
A formal front garden has been created, and the magnificent old magnolia tree under-planted with shade tolerant evergreen plants; including ferns and hellebores, making a wonderful woodland picture.
To the side of the house and wrapping around the generous terrace is a gravel path and mixed borders, with fragrant climbers clothing the walls of the house around the terrace.
Beyond the curved yew hedge is a pool surrounded by soft naturalistic planting to echo the fields beyond the garden. These are a magnet for wildlife and insects.
The drive has a different atmosphere again with borders full of maturing shrubs for all seasons.
