As in the Renaissance garden,
a tour around Sir Roy’s garden
is planned as a voyage of the
mind; it’s also a celebration
of his and his wife’s life.
Stephen Lacey
The Laskett Gardens are open from May
to September to pre-booked groups.

Set in the idyllic countryside of Herefordshire on the Welsh borders,
The Laskett Gardens was created Sir Roy Strong CH and his late
wife Julia Trevelyan Oman. Sir Roy chose a large variety of Chilstone
ornaments that he stylised to fit his unique design for each specific
area within the Laskett Gardens. He guilded the antlers of the
Chilstone recumbent stag in gold leaf adding a unique regal style.
Sir Roy used the existing stripes of the Popes urn and pedestal,
highlighting them in bold, primary colours to commemorate the
Queens diamond jubilee. This made our classic Chilstone piece
iconic, creating a fantastic focal point.
Chilstone ornaments have a traditional or contemporary style
of their own that can be adapted to suit a designer’s flair and
individual vision. We are flexible and can provide whichever
components are desired from our range to fit the needs of our
customers, to create statement pieces for your home and garden.
