Yeo Valley Garden, Bath Road, Blagdon, North Somerset. BS40 7SQ

This is a renowned organic garden comprising 6 1/2 acres of contemporary planting. Formal structural planting is used to create a number of individual gardens, notably in the glasshouse garden. The more informal parts of the garden are designed to give a relaxed contemporary feel. In the summer the bronze and gravel gardens provide the “wow” factor, the gravel garden is filled with colour, shape and movement is achieved by a tapestry of planting. Grasses are used extensively to reflect the surrounding landscape.
