Formal Garden

This garden was influenced by Renaissance and Baroque formal gardens. High hedges and walls create a self-contained area that draws the eye inward.

Formal components include topiary features, low box hedging, yew hedging and a line of pleached hornbeam to the rear of the boundary wall. These elements give a reassuring impression of established order and contrast with the looser shapes and bright colours of the climbers, colour-themed herbaceous plants and large specimen shrubs.

The willow pool is the focal point of the garden ? a dynamic water feature where sculptural fish jump up stream.
