The Story Of Cascades Gardens Development

In 1996 when we arrived at Cascades there were very few plants or shrubs and the garden was dark with 30ft high holly trees along the southern border. Most of the land was covered with 6ft high Hogweed, Ancient Elderberry trees, Brambles and Stinging Nettles. The pond was completely full of silt and choked with weed. The following photo gallery shows some fascinating before and after images.
