A CAPTIVATING PRIVATE DWELLING

National Garden Scheme Open Day

 

It was an honour and a joy to immerse in the inspiring gardens at Redhill Lodge in Rutland, courtesy of talented owners and garden designers Susan & David, in Barrowden. The gardens transported me to a prairie garden, and the natural pool left me spellbound. In the heat of 29 degrees, the thought did cross my mind to dip my toe!

I am very much looking forward to returning on a day when the weather provides a pop of light.

On the perimeter of the prairie garden stands a turf covered, spiral viewing mount, inspired by the work of landscape designers Charles Jencks and Kim Wilkie. When atop the mount, a Windmill crests the horizon of the beautiful rural setting between the villages of Morcott, and Barrowden, in Rutland.

I believe the tall, cloud shaped hedges on the boundary are inspired by Rousham Hall's vast cloud hedge, that resides next to the bowling green.
