My philosophy on garden design is much the same as that of the ancient chinese - "A walk around a garden should proove to be an exciting journey".

The process of designing a garden

The first thing to establish is the "back bone" of the garden, in the form of vistas and avenues.

Secondly the "skeleton" - hedges, paths and trees.

Thirdly the "flesh" - the lawns and the borders, and finally the smaller details like choice of annuals and detail to colour schemes.
