The garden is set into the hillside and is divided into many unique areas. There is a wet area suited to primulas, hostas and bamboos. A dry scree bed is south facing and suits a selection of rock plants. There is also a wild flower bed which offers much colour during the summer months. There are also many mature trees and shrubs throughout the garden.
