The Wisteria Arbour forms a visual axis that leads from the French doors on the main terrace and cuts through the garden to give it depth. An orb backed by Leighton Green hedging provides a focal point at the end of this axis. Masonry treads, inspired by a Paul Bangay garden and built in situ, help to accentuate the arbour’s length. Trained wisteria produces beautiful flowers in spring and cool shade in summer. The arbour is crossed at its centre by another main axis that drops from the urn in the Venus garden, through the arch and down more stairs to a seat in the olive grove.
