Paved area at Avenue Lodge

Like most long gardens, Avenue Lodge adds interest by breaking it up with barriers and points of interest. Along the border there are brick pillars topped with flower pots (you can see one on the right of this picture) and at the end of the garden there is a small pond with bird bath and statue.

But what I liked the most was this small paved area about half way down the garden. The grey stone interrupts the green flow of the lawn and is itself interrupted by plants and a pot. The northern boundary of this area is formed by the brick wall that curls away from the boundary and about 2m in to the garden. A large circular hole in the wall makes it both a curiosity and portal on to the rest of the garden.
