Set in a seven acre valley on the edge of Hay on Wye, Lower House has a fine garden created by Peter Daw and his late wife Nicky, shot through with a strong sense of design. In the marvellous topiary garden a standard Portuguese laurel is surrounded by a sea of box clipped into myriad shapes including 'stacked pebbles', as well as a pair of variegated hollies and voluptuous spires of yew. Elsewhere Vitis cognetiae flares red, willow stems blaze orange and ornamental grasses dry and turn brown, a papery contrast with the clipped evergreens around them. A garden of intense atmosphere in a beautiful rural setting with lots of nice design details.
