Anchor farm

By Blockley garden designer Alison Heitmann. This barn conversion courtyard looks out onto an open field with a pond and a very old tree. 

The client of this garden wanted a formal structured garden within the courtyard with plenty of interest and absolutely no lawn. The garden has been created to form four very different areas linked by York stone and cobbled pathways.

In this image above you can see Angelica archangelica in the foreground, with Nepeta Six Hills Giant and Alchemilla mollis edging the path. Rosa Sombreuil with Clematis alpina Francis Rivis are on the first post on the right, Rosa Glamis Castle on the first left post, Rosa Francis E Lester on the second left post, and Rosa Pauls Lemon Pillar with Clematis alpina Pink Flamingo on the second right post.
