Regardless of the plant material, I love the plantings on both sides of this pathway to ground it. Looks like it has always been there.
Wollerton Old Hall Garden - "Possibly the most beautiful personal garden to have been created in the last 25 years". important modern garden in the English Garden tradition with echoes of Arts and Crafts. It covers 4 acres & is intensely cultivated. Plan 2 and 4 hours for a visit.
