Belle Vue in May

It’s hard to believe that this garden, with its mature specimen plants and hidden alcoves, measures just 12 feet wide. However, whilst it appears narrow at the outset, as you walk along the path and discover surprises at each twist and turn, it seems wider because it cannot be viewed all at once. Adding to the illusion are boundary fences that are carefully built up with climbing plants, trees and shrubs, but without taking up much space. It’s also ingeniously planted so as to take advantage of the borrowed landscape of trees in neighbouring gardens, adding to a feeling of spaciousness.
