Compton Verney's Lost Garden

Using a photocopy of an estate plan of Compton Verney from first half of the 18th Century, by James Fish, I've roughly blocked out some of the. obvious features of this early design. Just a brief exercise to see how the garden could have looked prior to 'Capability' Brown's alterations from 1768.

Dan Pearson lecture at Garden Museum 2013

I thought I'd pop a few words out in response to an inspiring lecture I attended last night at the Garden Museum, given by a prominent garden and landscape designer, who is also featured in the soon-to-end exhibition there titled Green Fuse: the work of Dan Pearson. The lecture itself brought focus to a handful of garden design projects he has worked on, along with references to Dan's inspiration and experience.
