Detailed Description

The Paddock is not as the name suggests an open area for grazing. The Paddock includes a long pool surrounded by Bamboo, and other moisture loving plants, which has serpentine edges and an island dominated by Swamp Cypress. To the bottom of the pool is a winter garden planted in 1985. The view of the paddock is deliberately obscured by a range of shrubs and Pyrus salicifolia and is surrounded by contrasting Irish Yews and Black Walnut.
