Period Gardens

If you live or work in a traditionally styled property, a period garden will provide the perfect setting.  The garden my be a faithfully reconstruction of a garden of the period or simply incorporate some of its features adapted to the requirements of modern living.  It could occupy the whole site or simply be a beautiful feature within a conventional garden.

Period garden features could include a knot garden, parterre, arbour, fountain, rose garden, maze or formal kitchen garden.  There are many ideas which can be successfully incorporated into a modern garden design.

My period gardens include: 

The Jacobean Knot Garden at Hertford Museum which won awards

The Edwardian Garden at Much Hadham Forge Museum

A study of the Lutyens / Jekyll Garden at Temple Dinsley for English Heritage and The Herfordshire Gardens Trust
