The garden is half an acre, sloping up from the house. There are long borders, island beds, pond and rock garden.
An L shaped pergola covered in roses and clematis separates the flower garden from the orchard and wild garden. A recent addition, inspired by the gift of a banana plant is a tropical garden.
There are several specimen trees including a wedding cake tree and an Indian bean tree.
Fruit and vegetables are grown in raised beds and there are two small greenhouses.
A large Bramley apple tree full of mistletoe stands in an area planted with spring flowering bulbs and wild flowers.
Cordon pear and apple trees lead to a row of tall poplars, behind which are views of apple orchards. On a clear day, the church at Hinton St George can be seen.
A row of four compost bins produce amazing compost.
The island beds have been recently edged with Everedge, which makes the edges easier to manage, and the gravel paths are having their wooden edging boards replaced.~
A new rock garden edges the drive. Climbing roses, wisteria, and ivy cover the walls of the house and garage.
