This beautifully designed and stylish ornamental garden has eastern influences. It includes a small ornamental pond, a pergola, a separate water feature and borders containing a wide variety of hardy perennials. There is also a productive vegetable plot. 

The garden is on a slope and could be a little challenging for unsteady walkers as there are small steps along the garden pathway. But it's well worth the effort to visit this peaceful sanctuary, which has many perching posts where you can admire the garden.

A variety of plants will be for sale.
