This garden is very large. One of its aims is to educate, so separate sections of the garden are required to show each type of garden.

The Henry Moore Sculpture was at the top of Battleston Hill. There is a steep slope down to the Access Road for the maintenance staff before the slope becomes less steep through the Mixed Borders (Label of 2) to the Conifer Lawn. The steeper slope of the Conifer Lawn leads to the Canal and Loggia (Label of 12) before the slope continues downwards towards the river.

There is another steep slope from the Henry Moor Sculpture down to the Trials Field on the left hand side and then to the A3, which is the thick grey line in the bottom left corner. There is also a decline from the Henry Moore Sculpture through Battlestone Hill East to the A3 and the access road to the garden.

The hill extends from the Henry Moor Sculpture to the Fruit Demonstration Garden (Label of 6). Then that slopes down from the Fruit Demonstration Garden to the Alpine Display House (Label of 7) and the Vegetable Garden (Label of 8) before coming to the steeper slope of the Alpine Meadow (Label of 10), which has the Rock Garden alongside.

The Laboratory (Label of 15) is built on the horizontal terrace and it is then terraced down to the Canal and Loggia and up to the Bedding Area which leads to the Mixed Borders (Label of 2) to take care of the continuing slope of the hill down to the river beyond the right hand side of this plan. It also takes care of the Private House (Dark Grey with surrounding light grey of its garden, which is above the Garden Entrance /Exit).

In order to gain income the Plant Centre was then installed between the Bedding Areas and the Access Road. The Plant Centre also then shields from view the area for the Garden Maintenance staff which is the light grey area below it. This Maintenance area will not then be walked through by the garden visitors partly because of the instruction on the Access Road and also because it does not lead to an area for the visitors to see.

The Mixed Borders (Label of 2) provides:-

  • the area to enter the Plant Centre from the Garden
  • pathway to other garden areas
  • a gardening area in its own right about mixing herbacous perennials and other permanent planting with bedding plants for the Spring, Summer and Autumn
  • and a long vista to a focal point - Henry Moore Sculpture

The A3 is a major road which generates a lot of noise, most of which can be lost using the noise absorption of the evergreen leaves on the trees, rhododendrons, azaleas and camelias in Battleston Hill East.

Part of the way of splitting up this garden into separate areas in the ground sloping from the Mixed Borders up through Weather Hill in areas labelled 1 to 10 is done using Beech Hedging. It is thin and can be pruned on both sides, since all this hedging is internal to the garden. It also helps in reducing the wind and thus provides a less chilly place to walk for the visitors, which would not have been the case if it was either walling or fencing.

These separate areas are also in scale with each other and so is the scale of the steps in the top photo, with the width of the paths etc. There is more than 7 acres of garden to be used.

If there was no splitting up of the garden into separate areas with non-see through barriers between each area, then the Mystery required in the garden would not be there, because you might be able to stand in one place, look round and see everything from one vantage point. That would not persuade you to move from that place to explore what you have not yet seen.

You will notice that each of these 71 photo sections of the East and West Borders of the Mixed Borders have some of the same plants as in the adjacent section on the left or right hand side. When you compare the photos of the adjacent areas, you will see what you missed seeing from the last photo of the duplicated plants i.e you see its left side in the first section and the right side in the next and thus mystery is shown you from the microcosm.

Practical considerations play an important part in the split up into areas. Howard's Field, Pinetum and National Heather Collection are the other side of a Public Footpath through the garden. This Public Footpath has a fence each side of it to prevent the walkers on it getting into the garden. In previous years, the RHS created a wooden bridge over this path for visitor access. Unfortunately wheelchair users could not use it, since it had wooden steps up one side and then after a horizontal length; wooden steps down the other side. Now that bridge has been removed and besides the wheelchair users, mothers with their prams can now enjoy access to those garden areas, as shown below:-

and security cameras to check that the pedestrians on the public path do move from the Public Path to the remainder of this Public Path instead of into the Garden:-

Summary of the Mixed Border Planting Design and Garden Maintenance - including in tabular form - shows the number for each single colour and combinations of colours for each of these months and whether it is from the Permanent Herbaceous Perennial (See its Index Page), Bedding Plant (See its Index Page) or Other Permanent Plant (See Index in Flower Colours per Month) plant type.

Flower Colours in each of the 71 Parts of the Mixed Borders - with area indicating that the respective colour has not been used in this part .
 

More (See un-labelled bedding) than 102 plants (This is 29%, which is almost a third) were missing their identity when in flower in 2013 out of 348 in 768 square metres of Mixed Borders garden beds - These herbaceous borders are 6 metres (20 feet) deep and 128 metres (427 feet) long.

  • wheelchair supported children/adults recovering in hospital, rest or care home to go outside, view them and/or maintain those beds themselves
  • transport the raised bed into the patient's room, so that the patient can admire close-up what they normally see outside from their bed; and then for them to maintain or simply view for a while before that raised bed is returned outside that same day
  • infirm children, adults or pensioners to maintain and replant the raised beds, when they do not need to kneel down, bend their knees or reach above their shoulders

Solution to Unemployment in Britain:-

"The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Auckland, New Zealand, have taught 3 rescue dogs to drive in an effort to encourage people to adopt and love shelter pets."

Besides the trained dogs who aid Blind People in walking, these other dogs could be trained to drive in Britain. Then, when a Blind person wishes to be driven, an unemployed person could earn their benefit by being in the front passenger seat giving directions to the dog who is doing the driving, but not to the dog who is sitting in the back seat alongside the Blind passenger.

The Blind person gets social interaction and the unemployed person - in aiding this blind person to go further than that person can walk for shopping or to visit friends - increases their self-esteem and self-worth.

The cars are maintained and operated with the dog driver during 8 hours each week by these unemployed. The running costs, cars and car parts are paid for by the local Government Employment Department.
