Simply a few weeks in the past, Lucy joined Paul Bangay at his resplendent personal backyard, Stonefields, in Daylesford to launch his new e book. Paul created this grand nation backyard from scratch, and it has been a labour of affection for 16 years! Over that point, Paul as witnessed the spectacular and dramatic methods it modifications with the seasons. (In flip, it has witnessed the evolution of his stratospheric profession!)
However it’s not simply the months of the yr that dictate how this extremely detailed, multifaceted backyard seems and feels over time. The long-lasting panorama designer’s tastes and pursuits have modified within the final decade and a half, and all of that is mirrored within the ever-changing panorama at Stonefields. Have a look for your self and see the methods his extra formal, structured zones give option to patches of cultivated wilderness which at the moment are softened by an abundance of flowers.
You possibly can virtually scent the roses!
