Hortus Inclusus

The Hortus Inclusus, or enclosed garden is being created in part of the old kitchen garden. the final planting will be of British native herbs. The garden will be a series of twenty nine terraces, reflected about a central access path.

Bit of a big image this, Read the text first.

The terracing is made of locally grown oak, the four foot terraces are of sawn 7x4 inch timber and the curved designs are hand cut to the required dimensions. All joints are doweled. This view shows the completed ground work of the upper half of the garden. At the far end can just be seen the timber for the curved section of the lower half. The photograph below shows the woven lattice trellis being constructed at the top end of the garden


The series of photographs above show the lower section of the garden being created, hi resolution photographs will be added shortly for download. The lower trellis work is complete and the terraces are half way up to the central path.

At last it is finished, well almost, there are still seats and fence panels to make but it was officially opened on Sunday 23rd of July
