The Garden Pictorial

The Houseboat Garden, Essex

A garden overlooking the river crouch

Having been informed that the plan of creating a garden on a houseboat was ill-advised, owners Melanie & David Lewin threw themselves into this horticultural, nautical adventure, mainly to create some colour against the backdrop of mud.  Started in 2006, the houseboat overlooks the River Crouch in Essex and is bedecked with a plethora of vegetables, shrubs, grasses and flowers.

Season: Summer
Location: Burnham on Crouch, Essex, England
