A millstream garden in the Cotswolds with box topiary
A mill stream flowing through an exquisite small garden in the Cotswolds.
The garden has been designed around the stream, with an island bed edged in Cotswold stone containing clipped spheres of box (Buxus sempervirens). There is a four-square of matching box balls in the stream-side bed in the lawn, interspersed with lavender. Cottage garden plants edge the stream and the base of a barn wall.
