The place-name 'Wimblington' is first attested in a document of circa 975, where it appears as Wimblingetune. The name means 'the town or settlement of Winebald's people. The Rev Joseph Hill originally built the Rectory in Wimblington, which is now known as Eastwood Hall was sold into private hands by the church authorities in 1974.
The initial design brief required formal garden addition to the front of the house this was to include a Gothic urn and was to be used for wedding photographs during the marriage of the owners daughter, additional new planting designs to the front garden included a robust scheme for augmenting the existing boundary planting with various pockets replanted with shade tolerant planting. An area of wildflower meadow was added in 2005 by the paddock to the rear of the house a formal garden area on the terrace and long borders in front of the terrace were also redesigned.
Turn Your Dream Into A Reality
Gardens are never finished they change with the seasons and plants continue to grow and change. A garden design will provide you with the ultimate concept to work towards, however not all gardens can be afforded in one go, so to complete the final garden may take several years, this will be dependent on your budget and time frame.
It is however possible to have a garden designed so that it can be built by the contractor in phases. In this way a section can be completed and enjoyed, whilst the next phase is completed sometime in the near future.
