Istvan Dudas, careteker of this young, English garden, captures its heart through his photos.


"The garden is only 5 years old, it's a private family garden in the UK where you will find a few different rooms. Back of the house borders, green and white border, barn garden and the vegetable garden.The borders located at the back of the house are old English borders, which include climbing roses on the house wall, shrubs roses, shrubs, perennials and annuals. The Barn's garden is a new English garden which includes perennials, shrubs, ornamental grasses and annuals. I have been working in this garden for 4 years and year by year I try to improve this garden. I wanted to create a unique border which not everybody likes. This is absolutely fine, because what everybody likes it can be boring.  My borders can be artistic, beautiful, or like a living picture but never smart!  I believe that gardening is not just a simple job, but also a passion and an art."
