A very well-stocked secluded garden on different levels, the stone house wall is covered with wisteria, roses, clematis and honeysuckle. French windows open onto a terrace with a wrought iron balustrade; steps lead down to a small circular lawn with a stone sundial. As well as borders along both sides of the garden, there are three circular raised beds with brick elevations and two rectangular ones in stone. At the end of the garden a large flowerbed is divided with a picket fence, beyond which is a five foot drop to the walled parking area. The planting extends round the top of these walls.

About me
I moved to Devon in November 2011 and have a lovely garden which has been well planned and cared for up to about a year ago. I'm not sure what's going to appear as the seasons unfold - exciting!
