Large garden with a historical collection of specimen trees, the majority of which were also subject to Tree Preservation Orders, that have been heavily suppressed by unmanaged laurel growth leading to substantial damage to various trees and poor or potentially dangerous form.

Notable increase in butterfly and bird presence and signs of good quality soil with high nutrient levels beneath the laurel leaf humus–evidenced by the appearance of many species of mushroom in the following weeks.
