The actual garden plot is a typical long narrow Victorian one, 22.5 x 6.3m, (75 x 21 ft) and has evolved through different stages. The present garden is divided into five areas: patio, terra-cotta garden, pool garden, woodland and finally a formal area with grotto. The boundaries of each area are diagonal trellis or hedges, intended to deceive the eye into seeing the spaces as wider than they are. This optical illusion is further strengthened by the curving lines, both horizontal and vertical.
You can see the whole layout of the garden in the photograph above.
