Make it grand Take your cue from an iconic garden to mix up the old and new at your place
Take your cue from this landscape to create a gorgeous garden where the old meets the new
when it comes to garden style, you don’t have to choose between the classic and contemporary – it’s easier than you think to have both! For inspiration, you can’t go past Retford Park, an historic Australian garden that has evolved during the past five decades into an iconic landscape. Take a wander around this sprawling estate and see how its heritage roots survive into the present day when it comes to landscape style, plant selection and gardening practices. There are so many great ideas for you to try at your place, whatever the size of your outdoor area.
Give a knot garden a twist. Plant and clip low box hedging to create the design and use lawn in between instead of the traditional crushed gravel.
