The Rill Garden

A year ago I was invited to see a large garden in need of a cohesive design to celebrate it's history as a vicarage. The landscaping and planting is complete, and I am waiting for the right day (and a mown lawn!) to take perfect photos. These images show the rill, with square pond and fountain, and a spectacular David Harber water sculpture. In time the yew hedge behind the sculpture will be closely clipped, wrapping around the feature.  Mixed planting of Fatsia japonica, Japanese Acers, Hydrangeas, golden grasses, spring bulbs and Digitalis (foxgloves) will form a colourful backdrop. The movement of the water is calming and slightly hypnotic, and will look very dramatic when lit at night.
