Old Mill House in September

Designing a new garden carries an overwhelming temptation to sweep away the old and start completely afresh, but the knurled fruit tree espaliers that for decades have stretched in front of the old mill were never under threat. Today, they provide a great framework for the front garden all the year round, providing a backbone running down two long, broad beds whilst, to each side, box balls intermingle with shrubs and herbaceous planting, flowing in waves between the gravel driveway and a separate path. A stone terrace lies immediately in front of the house, broken up by the mosaic, a small circular parterre and borders which, whilst echoing the blend of box and herbaceous in the long beds, are planted with ornamental pear trees.
