Trentham Gardens in Summer

Work on restoring the beautiful Trentham Gardens began in 2004 and they now bear the hallmarks of two of Europe’s greatest modern garden designers, Tom Stuart-Smith and Piet Oudolf.

In addition the naturalistic landscapes in the gardens are the work of the 'father of landscape architecture', Capability Brown. Summer provides abundant colour across the gardens. The Italian Garden, designed by Tom Stuart-Smith is one of the largest contemporary perennial plantings in Europe. Herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses are combined in a naturalistic way, with hot colours featuring beside the ruins of Trentham Hall and lighter, more muted shades down beside the Capability Brown lake. The Floral Labyrinth, designed by Piet Oudolf, features paths winding through great swathes of massed herbaceous planting. There are 30 beds of tall perennials providing the visitor with constantly shifting views of colourful plants, spilling out across the paths towards each other, or interlocking in waves of complementary hue, texture and form. Elsewhere there is the David Austin Rose Border, which runs along The Trellis Walk. It includes a shrub roses chosen for their beautiful flowers as well as fragrance and reliability. Most are David Austin's English Roses together with with Old Roses and Hybrid Musks. The border was designed by Michael Marriott of David Austin Roses. There are also Long Borders and a Rivers of Grass area, again designed by Piet Oudolf, as well as a formal Upper Flower Garden area, complete with traditional summer bedding.
