Amazing Mazes

I recently read a book for bookclub called “Larry’s Party” by Carol Shields. Now you might wonder what this has to do with landscaping and why am I giving you reading tips, but there is a point to this.

The central character, Larry became a maze-maker: a profession up until reading this book I had never really given thought to.  In Larry’s Party, he studies mazes from all around the world and creates his very own in his garden.  In real-life, Adrian Fisher is the world’s leading maze designer.  He has some spectacular and inspirational designs on his website.

At Lloyds Gardens of London, no-one as of yet has requested a maze as part of their brief but never say never!

In the meantime, please enjoy some pretty pictures of the Turf Maze at Saffron Walden that I visited a few years ago.
