About the Garden

This naturalistic water garden, designed and built to celebrate a double 25-year anniversary, incorporates the hallmark design elements that have been most popular with this garden designer’s clients.
 
It is a natural and calming space in which to relax and unwind. Water tumbles gently over pink sandstone rocks into a tranquil central pool. The waterside planting has an informal style, selected to entice wildlife to visit and harmonises with the pink rock.
 
A central paved area for relaxing and entertaining is reached by crossing a stepping stone path over the water. The gateposts lead to a hammock, which provides a place to unwind and admire the surrounding countryside.
