This oblique view of the Italian terrace and rustic summerhouse shows that it is quite a steep climb from the lawn up the slope, which was probably a chalk cliff at the south end of the quarry when Henry Trevor began work on his garden.

Planting on these slopes is definitely hazardous, so the aim is to plant perennials which do not need much maintenance.
