Jackie Knight Landscapes return to Tatton with a striking rock and water garden crafted from natural materials.

The trademark design features water tumbling over sandstone rocks into a small tranquil pool. The water recedes into the distance under a simple stone, slab bridge. The gentle sound of the water has been designed to attract and support wildlife. Rocks highlight the pool and a stone sitting area provides a restful place in which to dangle feet and quietly observe the wildlife. The grassy bank provides a relaxing site for a hammock in which to unwind and enjoy nature.

The majority of the planting around the pond is predominantly of moisture-loving perennials, kindly supplied by Pickmere Perennials. Alpines and heathers have been planted on the rock bank to complement the design.
