The “Dry Garden” which runs alongside the Park’s inner lake, was created in the summer of 2009 and features more than 80 varieties of plants including: agapanthus, red hot pokers and grasses, shrubs, bulbs and perennials.
The garden was designed to enhance the lake landscape and to demonstrate the type of planting that can be successful in dry conditions at times of water shortages.
It was constructed by importing a good top soil which was then covered with a horticultural membrane and layers of pea shingle. The plants were then planted through the layers into the new topsoil. Over time, the area will develop into a beautiful display for our visitors.
