Lawn History

“I think turf is overdone in England.”
Mrs. C. W. Earle (1836-1925) Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden

Robert Laycock is one of very few specialists in the history of the lawn and is able to advise on how to make lawns interesting features in their own right.

He has accumulated a considerable archive of historical material relating to the subject, which is available for use in his consultancy services for landscape architects and owners and managers of historic properties.
