Our work

The long, double herbaceous borders running down to the pond at Upton House, Warwickshire.

Conserving the herbaceous border 

This garden conservation project started in July 2017. Over the next three years a different section of our impressive double herbaceous border will undergo replanting.

Keeping the grass growing green  

Turf maintenance is a year round task for the garden team. Following a regular maintenance programme of weekly checks for the signs of wear and a rotation of areas being open and closed are all part of the turf plan for Upton.
