A human touch inhabits the sweeping gestures of the British landscape designer Jinny Blom:

 

"Take risks. If someone tells you something is impossible, see if you can do it. Gardening is a knife edge between disaster and serendipity."

In this garden, just 40 minutes from London, Jinny Blom converted a neglected hilltop farm into a garden of exquisitely designed rooms with an astonishing grand finale, overlooking a wide valley in the high chalklands.
Jinny Blom's gardens at Temple Guiting, a 15th-century manor in Gloucestershire, England, won her a Pinnacle Award, with dry-stone walls that divide the 14-acre site into 18 "rooms," each with a distinct style and story to tell.
