The East Garden

Several ideas were considered for the East Garden including one for a more formal Knot Garden with kitchen garden planting. However, in 2010 work began on turning the East garden into a cottage style garden designed around an oval lawn, a tribute to the classic English ‘Front Garden’.  With the addition of a path in 2012 the oval lawn became a ‘D’.  Local stone replaced an ugly breeze block wall and the planting introduced is somewhat chaotic.  It was what I had in mind the first time I ever saw the house. Not particularly functional, just a lovely place to enjoy the morning sunshine.
