A sea-side flower-filled garden, tucked into the hillside, sheltered from N winds, has been developed on a minimal budget respecting the natural flow of the 0.75 acre sloping site. The 30ft high rockery was developed using natural and sometimes steep pathways. It is planted with interesting specimen shrubs, trees, alpines, succulents and perennials. Twisting paths and steps lead down to a natural pond. This sandy lower garden is surrounded by perennial borders, shrubs, interesting specimen trees, all under-planted with naturalized bulbs. During the informative garden tour the owner will point out trees and shrubs of special interest and plant groupings and discuss growing tips both for the novice and experienced gardener. Mobility access to both upper and lower gardens.
