A Reflective Garden

Show Gardens
With its long pool, tall, sculpted Elaeagnus trees and intimate summer house, this formal garden offers a soothing sight to the viewer. Cornus, alliums, astrantia, artemesia, roses, hostas and globe artichokes define the planting scheme, which is gentle on the eye – in tones of green, silver, white and purple – and has a soft and feathery quality.

The water, with its light-reflective qualities, promotes tranquility and mindfulness. The theme of reflection is alluded in the summer house. This is an inviting garden in which to gather thoughts and withdraw to later emerge rejuvenated by its beauty. York handmade bricks and rugged Caithness slate form the hard landscaping.
