They built an orangery, replaced several trees, keeping the mature horse chestnut and planted a trimmed plane tree in the courtyard. In 2003 a small orchard and vineyard were removed and a separate garden was created for fruit trees and bushes including; gooseberry, raspberry, blackberry and currants. In the old Limburg tradition, hawthorn hedges were planted as fences between the separate garden rooms. Many yew and box topiary create fine structures offering year round interest of colour and form. There are colourful perennial borders effectively backed by beech and yew hedges. There are views to the surrounding countryside from almost every part of the garden.
