21 Chestnut Road, A garden for all seasons.
This area was mostly lawn with a big weeping willow tree in the corner. The first project was to remove the tree and in it's place put a raised deck with summer house and a pond. So it all began in 2000, and over the years gradually more and more lawn has been replaced with borders and features. As part of the NGS gardens which open for charity, we try to give our visitors something new to see every year. Whilst I have plenty of ideas there is less lawn!
Our visitors first see the garden when they come throught this archway. There are a number of small areas of gravel, where many of the perennials happily seed.
I particularly like this colour combination, the purple and white really shine out in the early evening light of late summer.
In late spring in this part of the garden, irises and roses fill the air with their scent.
