Sadly i didn't get chance to visit Barnsdale today, I ran out of time and had to be back home to do the school run. But I will be visiting one day this summer.

I drew mine out to scale first, then transferred the info to the software.

I used free trial period of smallblueprinter.com on my laptop to design my new garden layout. Download the free trial software only when you know you have sufficient time to sit down and use it, so you can complete the design before the free trial ends.

Id prefer to see more of Mony working in his own garden. I often FF through the bits where they visit other gardens etc.

Thanks, I guess I may as well go take a look whilst I'm in the area, think its currently only £6 entrance fee to I can always go again in the summer. And I may have some of the garden to myself if its quiet.

Those photos look excellent David. Looks like you were there in the summer, would the gardens still be worth seeing at this time of year, would there be much to see?

Im in the area of Barnsdale later this week and was going to go take a look. Is it worth seeing at this time of year?

Im going to guess that its a south facing garden for the following reasons..

There is still frost on the lawn which suggests the photo was taken in the morning. The shadows cast on the lawn are coming from the left, if the photo was taken in the morning then the sun will be rising in the East, so the left side of the garden must be east. 

I rest my case mulord

nutcutlet, I found a Goldfinch nest in my laurel hedge the other year, they must like laurel?

Personally i'd install a path alongside the hedges to help with cleaning up cuttings (this is wha I'm planning in my garden).

Id then create borders against this path, so the path is hidden. Its a nice large garden so the borders could be quite deep, curved borders would look really nice.

Maybe have an oval shaped lawn, with deep curved borders around it. Im not a fan of having a mass of lawn with plants flung to the outside edge, but thats my personal choice.
