The Summer House Garden

The Summer House garden, created between 2002-2003, is made up of 6 beds positioned north-east of the house. It has been the most enduring of all the gardens. Except for the freeform bed (Number 10), this garden has remained very much unchanged. Originally, bed Number 10 consisted of 14 Skylark junipers arranged in groupings of three with a front-facing border of annuals which varied from one year to the next. The fir trees were transplanted from the bush at the back of the property. The existing arrangement where hostas dominate in bed Number 10 dates from 2013. In this garden there is more harmony with the rural setting in the presence of the rustic structure referred to as the Summer House. It has proven to be a memorable feature with most visitors, and presents a great photo-op.
