In 2005 Geoffrey and Christine Ingham left a flat suburban garden in Cambridge full of exotics for a steeply sloping, overgrown cottage garden near Newmarket in rural Suffolk. Geoffrey, the garden designer of the pair, saw the south-facing slope as an advantage, the chance to try something completely new. Inspiration struck as Geoffrey watched coverage of the Masters Golf tournament from Augusta, Georgia: 'The repeated verticals of very tall pine trees on the course really struck me', he says. 'In our garden I'm contrasting tall vertical forms like those, with rounded ones to make a composition, and I use the plants I need to achieve that. Japanese gardens have influenced me too, particularly the way they train plants by tying branches down and clipping foliage.'
