Rousham

August 7, 2011
The design of the garden at Rousham makes practical use of the large flat areas at the top of the slope to site the house, kitchen gardens and paddock.  The fringe areas and the slope to the river are then given over to the garden.

Plan

Opening in Bowling Green Hedge leading to Kitchen Gardens

The hedge forms a green wall, redirecting the view across the paddock.

View across Paddock to Gothic Seat and Palladian Doorway

The paddock is enclosed by a ha-ha, which if followed leads to a seat and a doorway to the road.
