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.

Dove, I love that second photo. Im thinking of growing a clematis up a Magnolia tree in my garden, its flowers don't last long so a clematis would give it a welcome lift.

Only 6 more sleeps to go. Although I'm an insomniac, so only 3 sleeps for me 

Time for a new garden design?

Meadow7, yes I think I'l put it all the way around the lawn, though i may need to purchase a few more lengths.

 

FG, I definitely want to be able to see the pond from the living room as I look out of the window. Maybe I should position it further down the garden so its next to the patio, lost to where the outdoor seating is shown?

The building you see in the lower right is actually my garage. The house is at the bottom of the plan with the patio doors looking out onto the patio, as per the photo below
