our garden

The garden was designed by Simon Dorrell in 2001 - Simon designed the fabulous gardens at Hampton Court in Herefordshire and also commissioned me to make the hundreds of large terracotta garden pots that he needed for this new formal garden.

At Culmington every trace of the old garden was destroyed and a new plan laid out. Apart from help from the best digger driver in the world, I undertook all the hard landscaping and planting through 2002/3.

In the garden are examples of the commissioned work I undertook for some of the great gardens in the United Kingdom, notably Hampton Court, Dyrham Park and Powis Castle.
