The property adjoining this garden is a stunning example of Edwardian architecture and style with many period features remaining unchanged since the time it was built. With this in mind the garden has been designed to compliment the house and is in keeping with the predominant themes of the Arts and Crafts Edwardian period. During the Arts and Crafts period many gardens still retained the formal and Italianate style which was popular during Victorian and Georgian times but the planting became increasingly naturalistic with native plants being interwoven with cottage garden plants to emulate the surrounding landscape. This garden has a formal structure but has been softened with loose informal planting. Some clipped forms have been included in the planting to contrast and emphasise the naturalistic planting.
