About Our Visitor Gardens

Main Header

In 2012 we officially opened three gardens at our nursery to delight and inspire our visitors. We hope you have an opportunity to view them in person one day soon. Meanwhile, here is a sneak preview.

The Courtyard Garden

Design by Helen Thomas
Built by Majestic Trees

The building site for our new Garden Room extension had to be carved into a hillside, leaving an outlook with steep banks on all sides. An interesting design challenge! So much so we offered recent graduates of Capel Manor College of Garden Design a chance to compete for the best design solution. The brief was to provide a pleasing outlook from the Garden Room which demonstrates how mature trees and specialist products can transform even the smallest and most difficult of spaces. We hope you agree that winner Helen Thomas's design met that brief extremely well!

Planning for Planting Garden

Design by Majestic Trees, with Helen Thomas
Built by Majestic Trees

Probably the only garden of its kind in the country, Planning for Planting has been designed to help visitors more easily visualise the logistical side of the tree buying process. The garden displays examples of different access conditions, staking system options, and irrigation and watering solutions. Add uplifting landscaping and a take-away planning guide, and 'the boring technical bit' becomes – quite literally -a walk in the park.

Welcome Gardens

Design by Helen Thomas
Built by Majestic Trees

The brief here was to provide a welcoming and inspiring feel for our visitors, creating an inviting flow from our advice centre to the gardens and nursery areas behind. We love the way Helen's design swirls around the angular features of the building and echoes the circular motifs of the Courtyard Garden at the rear.
