We visited today when the garden was open to raise funds for the local hospice. Whilst we enjoyed our visit, the garden is an incredibly personal space and a lot of the stories behind the various garden rooms and the statuary were lost on us....More

Interesting garden with a lot of structural features and planting in rooms. Just taken over by Perrenial I am sure it will develop in to a visiting garden rather than a private garden. The reason I say this is that there is a lot of...More

We visited the garden on 8th May 2016, the NGS open day. The field to park the cars was at least 6ins high with grass, and as it was raining was very wet. The gardens are certainly very different. I had expected a much neater...More

Visted with a group from our local Gardening Club. Happily it was a nice day and the Gardens were lovely. Some aspects lean heavily towards the theatrical side of the late Lady Strong - painted stoneware which I would have preferred to be plain stone...More

This is well worth a visit, particularly if Sir Roy carries out his threat to destroy it soon. A private garden that is also a personal memory bank, but nevertheless full of ideas. Do go, and tell him not to do it.

A beautiful maze of topiary and statuary, but not a lot in the way of planting, flowers, etc. The owner, Sir Roy Strong, is clearly an egotist of the first order. His initials are on absolutely everything, and it is impossible avoid reproductions of a...More

We visited the garden on the only NGS open day in 2014. Laskett is not a plantsman's garden: is an architectural garden with geometric structure, angles, vistas, statuary and buildings. The main feature, though, is topiary. All the avenues and garden spaces comprise yew and...More
