Winter Colour

This picture of the Severn Acre lake at the Royal Horticultural Society Garden Wisley shows what can be achieved when skilled and knowledgeable gardeners decide to create some winter colour next to a lake.

We first worked on the Seven Acre lake nearly twenty years ago, we cleaned it out, installed some revetment and put in a bentonite cut off trench to help maintain summer water levels. We also built a cascade and pump system all in the wettest autumn for years.

Last year we were asked to build a retaining wall around part of the lake to support the bank, and then the RHS staff took over with the planting, with the spectacular results in the photograph.
