The middle lawn of this Cotswold village garden is long and steep and the trampoline was no longer needed. To make a more sympathetic approach to the lower garden a gentle, winding grass path was cut out of the lawn and the design was finished with a structural circular bed at the bottom.

Below is the Super Poppy ‘Medallion’ that flowers in early summer. If you cut it down to the ground after it has flowered and feed it with a balanced plant fertiliser it will flower again for you in the Autumn.
