The Lavinia Walk
Leading from the Rose Garden, through the herbaceous borders to the Temple Garden is the Lavinia Walk which is a new feature of the gardens, and is to be a fitting tribute to Lady Lavinia.
In January 2017 work began to transform this long walk, and incorporate the existing herbaceous borders. The old gravel path was removed and replaced with turf, and two large double herbaceous borders (100m long) were marked out. To the back of each bed will be an avenue of ornamental trees (species yet to be confirmed). Ground preperation on the borders including a york stone edging will continue throughout 2017 with final planting taking place in the spring of 2018. .
