It’s all about structure and careful planting in this dramatically sloping SSE facing garden, 30 x 18 metres. A lively blend of perennials and shrubs shows definite Kiwi influences. The kitchen garden with raised beds and soft fruits is wonderfully secluded. Lower level planting has a coastal feel. Upper level has a hot colour border. Borrowed views of mature trees set it off.
The garden office/ summer house constructed from sustainably sourced materials has a rubble roof to attenuate water runoff .
Recycling and reuse of materials.
Teas and plants will be on sale. Please bring your own bags.
Get there by buses 68, 468, 42 or it’s a 5-minute walk from Denmark Hill train station, 15 minutes from Denmark Hill or , Loughborough Junction.
