Wisdom and Youth Garden

By garden designer James Davies. This garden has been designed in a traditional cottage garden style (representing the wisdom in its title) but with a modern, youthful touch.

Wisdom and youth garden

It has been kept relatively open to give a spacious feel, with a gazebo to provide some privacy. The title of the garden also refers to the help and advice the designer has received from family and friends, though the youth reference is open to debate!
