Painswick Rococo Garden to get planting design from Chris Beardshaw scholar Paul Hervey-Brookes

Chris Beardshaw scholar for 2009 Paul Hervey-Brookes is to create a planting design for part of Painswick's Rococo Garden in Gloucestershire.

Painswick Rococo Garden director Paul Moir has tasked Chris Beardshaw's latest scholar with creating a planting design for the "wilderness" area of the garden.

Paul Hervey-Brookes' design for the former shrubbery area will be handed to landscape consultants EDA Environmental Design Associates, who are working with the garden on its restoration.

The design is part of a wider landscape restoration that Painswick Rococo Garden hopes to begin in October 2010.

The landscape restoration will cost £100,000 and will follow work that is now being carried out to repair the garden's Red House, with the help of a £50,000 grant from English Heritage.

Painswick Rococo Garden trustees are meeting on Thursday (15 October) to discuss fundraising ideas, said Paul Moir.

Contact garden director Paul Moir on 01452 813204.
