Wychfield Lawns and Box Beds
The large area behind Wychfield house is made up of extensive lawns with a network of winding gravel pathways, taking you past a wealth of mixed planting areas and majestic trees. As you explore Wychfield, you will find the Rose Arch with roses, clematis and tender exotic plants. This leads you onto the Round Garden, a mixed border which is planted with Echinacea, Sedums, Sisyrinchium, Weigela and Deutzias amongst other delights. Located to the side of Herrick House is Cherry Tree Mound, home to the sculpture Twelve by Jonathan Clarke. In spring the mound is awash with Fritillaria, Narcissus, Camassia and Primula. The Edwardian Summerhouse located nearby provides a perfect spot to sit and take in another view of the garden.
On the south side of Wychfield House facing the Cedar Tree Lawn, the Box Beds are to be found. An area planted with a mixture of shrubs and roses, it comes into its own in summer when a riot of colour is produced by Nasturtium, Calendula, Foxgloves, Rudbeckia, Nigella, Lychnis and Veronica which create a very informal feel, that is bound together by the crisp, neatly clipped Box hedging planted in a linear pattern.
