Joyce and Harry Kingman’s north facing garden was previously a stackyard. Stone found on site was used to build several retaining walls and a rockery with water feature. A Yorkstone terrace leads between gravelled areas to a lawn surrounded by mixed borders giving year round interest. Hedges and several conifers provide shelter and nest sites. Raised beds contain fruit and vegetables.
