Garden Designer, Alison Green, has turned two acres of virgin land into a vibrant garden. In 1999 it was just rough grass, now the sloping south-facing garden is divided into different levels using yew hedging to create distinct garden rooms, each with its own dominant colour and style.

Alison Green’s background as a garden designer is apparent in her clever arrangement of the plot. Her challenge was how to create a garden from a large plot with a house sitting in one corner. So she has divided the sloping, south-facing garden into different levels using yew hedging to create distinct garden rooms, each with its own dominant colour and style.
A self-confessed plant addict, she aims to have the longest possible season of colour in every setting. Green’s tour of the garden takes in the Monty Don-inspired jewel garden, a spiral earthwork called the golden garden, a woodland walk, a wildflower lawn, a natural swimming pool, and pebble mosaic, courtyard, knot and vegetable gardens.
Address: Theobald’s Farmhouse, Burnt Farm Ride, Crews Hill, Enfield, Middlesex, EN2 9DY. The garden can be visited through the National Garden Scheme, and Open Gardens in the Enfield and District Area https://www.enfieldgardeners.co.uk/gardens.php
