This garden in Ravenscourt Park was neglected and unloved when its owners moved in, consisting of a shabby lawn and a couple of scruffy shrubs but two promising trees – a Magnolia and an Apple tree. The garden has evolved over the years with structural Buxus pyramids later being replaced with Taxus baccata. The introduction of a Wildflower meadow with a winding path was later reconfigured bringing an abundance of wildlife.
The garden of landscape designer Butter Wakefield is simple yet an absolute delight and so pleasing to the eye. Inspiration folder material for sure. (Photography: Clive Nichols / Ellie Walpole / Simon Brown)
