A circular deck overlooks a beautiful circular lawn and follows around the magnolia grandiflora. There is also a hidden circular pond with a small decking area beyond.
 
Across the garden are raised beds, laid out in a geometric pattern, where small quantities of many different varieties of both modern and heritage vegetables are grown. Apple, pear, fig and plum trees are a real delight and thrive in this garden oasis.
 
The garden is largely organic, no pesticides being used, and herbicides very occasionally on paths.  
 
There are several sculptures around the garden, not to be taken too seriously.
