More about 66 Abbots Gardens

Evolved from a complimentary combination of garden design and artefacts: Stephen studied at Capel Manor and Ruth is a stained glass and mosaic artist. This garden was inspired by the design philosophy of Thomas Church (1902-1978) and has been created for tranquillity and year round interest using plant form, colour, texture and a strong asymmetrical geometry to create a calming yet dramatic environment. South facing (20mx10m) with grasses, herbaceous, perennials, ornamental shrubs, trees and a discreet vegetable plot. Fused glass amphorae and feathers are set amongst the plants (and available for sale) whilst a mosaic forms the backdrop to one of the water features. Circular front lawn enclosed by grasses, herbaceous, shrubs and hedge.
