TERRACED GARDEN

This is a garden in Northamptonshire which has been terraced with local ironstone and sandstone retaining walls. The top level is a patio and vegetable garden with a wild flower meadow under the apple tree, and the middle and lower levels are lawn and borders. Access into the garden is either from the stable apartment decking, or up from the courtyards via stone steps. The retaining walls have coping stones on top which double-up as informal seating places.
