The garden of approximately a third of an acre is on three sides of the house. Over the last seven years it has been transformed into five distinct areas.
•To the east, there is a spring garden with many bulbs, cherry trees, and two mature large trees, a horse chestnut and a sycamore.
•To the south is a dry gravel garden that has been planted with drought resistant plants to provide colour from early spring to late autumn. There is a row of two types of Japanese cherry trees that start the year with spectacular blossom and finish with a fiery autumn foliage. The garden is bordered with a cloud pruned yew hedge which screens the two large rainwater recovery tanks.
•In the south west there is a grove of distinctive Himalayan Silver Birch, many of which are multi stemmed. Their pure white stems and branches provide the foreground for the winter garden of choice plants and selected evergreen shrubs. On its boundary are three large trees: a cypress, a sycamore and a fine multi-stemmed ash.
•To the west is the summer garden centred on a croquet lawn bordered by mixed beds featuring shrubs and a varied range of herbaceous planting. This garden starts in March with its tulips and continues through the summer before its rich autumn colours end the year in November.
•The walled sunken Japanese garden is to the north west. Featuring two linked reflecting pools and with a filtered water flow system and glass waterfall, the lower pool has a fountain and is suitable for fish. By the waterfall there is a slate paved area for summer living and outdoor dining. The gravel is laid over weed resistant matting and has three rocks in ascending size up to the largest shaped like a mountain and over a metre in height. There are two flowering crab apples, a Stone Pine and a Tibetan Cherry with its unique mahogany bark. On two sides are planted four varieties of bamboo in raised beds including both golden and black stemmed types.
•Hidden behind the bamboo screen can be found a 6' x 8' greenhouse (with a concrete base and power supply) next to a raised bed for salad and herb growing and a plant storage area.
•In the north-eastern corner of the car park is a fenced off area with garden sheds, storage and composting facilities.
The north side of the property has shared driveway access leading to the double garage plus additional parking for up to 7 vehicles.
Up and over door electric door, power and light connected, gas meter and floor standing gas fired boiler and side personal door leading to the Japanese Water Garden and return door to Kitchen.
