4.1 Lawn Gardens - A Classical Garden with a Twist

This garden wraps around the house giving opportunity to create many different spaces. An intense potager garden with central plantings of standard vines leads to a glasshouse with cold frames. Elsewhere, beyond the large formal lawn a massive oak pergola gives opportunity for hanging swing seats, and children's play area is neatly tucked away.
