    When this garden was created 13 years ago it was carefully planned to make the most of an awkwardly shaped plot, creating intimate areas on different levels. The more formal front garden, with its emphasis on evergreen structure and texture, leads visitors towards the front door. By the side of the house a painted gate opens into the back garden. Here the evergreen structure from the front is continued, but in a more relaxed style, anchoring the abundant planting to give it definition. Numerous seating areas provide places to stop and enjoy the colour and fragrance of densely planted borders. A rose covered archway leads through to the less formal part of the garden, where yew hedging has been planted to define a relaxed lawn area. Three recently planted hornbeams, (getting ready to be shaped into domes when they fill out), lead the eye to seating under a newly planted prunus; three Malus Everest planted at the same time as the hornbeams sit either side of the mown path up to the gate into the field. The orchard and kitchen garden, with espaliered apples, greenhouse, raised vegetable and cutting beds, is separated from the rest of the garden with wings of yew and mixed native hedging. It's from here that the spectacular views across to the North Downs can be most appreciated.
