    I've got a 2 bedroomed bungalow,but my garden is bigger than Will's.

    A stately home , it is not.

    I am trying to remember the film star, who was nicknamed bungalow: because he had nothing up top!

    That garden is smaller than mine, but I wouldn't consider it small by modern standards.

    See original post

    He didn't actually say it was small. Just a difficult proportion to make interesting, being long and narrow. Or at least that's what I heard.

    That's what I heard too, raisingirl. It was interesting for me as it's almost exactly the size of my garden (though mine's north facing, is outside a much less gaceful house and doesn't have a lovely church spire for a focal point!). Those proportions, even if on a smaller scale, are incredibly common and the design tips are therefore still useful, imo.

    I watched it earlier and I can't say I got any negativity from Adam about the garden, its size, or shape at all. He merely pointed out how difficult it COULD be to make its shape interesting.

    I enjoyed seeing West Dean Gardens. Sarah Wain gave me my first cardoon as a thank-you after I explained why "beaver tail glass" is the shape it is. She didn't know beforehand.
