The garden is only eight years old and is sited on a steep slope, with a stream that floods in winter. With careful landscaping, terracing, water management and plant choice, the garden has interest throughout the year. This set of photographs illustrate the summer season in Paddy’s garden. The site slopes steeply down from the house to a stream, which divides the garden. This has been terraced and planted with perennials. Bridges link to the lower areas and leading firstly to a rock garden for Paddy’s collection of Alpines. Moving to the the end of the plot, this area has been turned into a bog garden with a large pond, using plants that flourish in the damp. Boardwalks have been built over the dampest parts, allowing free pedestrian access. Next to this there is a small vegetable plot with greenhouse and raised beds to help grow plants that will not tolerate waterlogged soil. Paddy often opens her garden to the public with various open days with Hampshire based plant societies.
