This grassed terrace gently slopes southwards from the lower section of the walled garden to the treehouse and fountain garden. Populating the terrace are formal, evenly spaced, yew (Taxus baccata) topiary specimens that give an interesting and defined appearance. The yew topiary and hornbeam hedging frame a formal vista on the western side of the walled garden that looks down towards the urn and fountain garden. The terrace features walled borders both to the north and south, in which can be found a selection of plants including cultivars of Miscanthus spp., sun rose (Cistus spp.), and Culver’s root (Veronicastrum virginicum).
To the south and east of the yew terrace there is a partly walled area containing a swimming pool and pergola walkway which is covered by Wisteria floribunda spp. and climbing and rambling roses. Planting in the surrounding borders includes blue quamash (Camassia leichtlinii), Euphorbia palustris, greater masterwort (Astrantia major ‘Claret’), coneflower (Echinacea purpurea ‘Magnus’) and grasses such as Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ and Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracillimus’.
