Lunchtime Lecture: Kerb Appeal  photo

Internationally acclaimed garden designer, broadcaster and author, Anthony Noel, shows us how to make the front of our houses irresistible. Starting with the front door itself, Anthony moves on to window treatments and how to make a setting for any house, big or small. He discusses gates, fences, paving, lighting, climbing plants, hedges, containers, paint colours, driveways, paving and even wheelie bins! To quote his colleague and friend, the late, great David Hicks, 'Decoration is the art of making the maximum out of the minimum – both inside and out.' In this talk, Anthony is privileged to include special photography by world-renowned garden photographer, Andrew Lawson.
