Kevin Begley, Coolwater Gardens

Posted: 13/3/2017

Coolwater is a small private garden set on half an acre, which is open 12 months of the year, by prior arrangement, to groups. Distinctively different, overlooked on either side by Skule Hill and Rockstown Castle, Coolwater Garden is designed for year round structure and shape.

Its highlights contain a really cool water garden, a large number of landscaped Alpine troughs, covered Arid section, combe bordered with thyme running between two ponds, fern dell, juniper escarpment, Lewisia outcrop, Japanese Maple bed, bamboo, heath, etc, etc. Lizards, newts and frogs seem to love the garden, making it their home and sticklebacks dart about endlessly in the water.
