"Arne Maynard is one
of the most talented
garden designers
working in Britain
today. Whether in the
city or in the depths
of the country,
his gardens are a
magical combination
of architecture and
romance, the classic
and the contemporary,
and relate to their
surroundings in subtle
ways." Tricia Guild

January 2018: A new head gardener

In late November 2017 I stood, discussing the garden with Arne, on the bridge spanning the stream that circles the garden here at Allt y bela. As we talked a kingfisher darted into view, idled for a moment, before disappearing downstream....


The Ever Evolving Garden

This year I feel very fortunate to have been asked to speak at several events and conferences in both the UK and USA. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my love of plants and my approach to garden design with new audiences.


Garden Courses - taking a break

We will be taking a break from running garden courses at Allt y bela in 2018. Arne will still give a number of talks and lectures throughout the year, which we will keep you updated about here. Thank you for your continued support.
