Ichi-Coo Park

Ichi-Coo Park is unlike any garden you've ever visited. It glories in shapes and shades of green, layered into the hillside, painted onto the natural background of the Sussex Weald. It is an eclectic collection of plants, trees and water, spaces, forms and vistas, habitats and sanctuaries. A place for reflection, for relaxation, oh and a plane spotter's dream.

About Ichi-Coo Park

My garden is a kind of metaphor for my life. It’s about taking what you have and not only making the most of it, but of facing up to and overcoming the challenges until all around you is flourishing.

It’s a work never complete. Plants and trees share much in common with people. We are all part of nature, of life on earth and we share the same energy.

This hill of mine is made of ancient Wealden Clay, the heavy yellow kind. My trees and plants are given two choices, ‘thrive or not, the choice is yours’. Unsurprisingly, the vast majority choose to thrive – and delight!

World’s longest hypericum serpent. Probably the largest garden plantation of eucalyptus in the UK. Many rare and unusual evergreen trees. Visit the Lake District, walk amongst exotic planting in the Grand Canyon to the Sea of Tranquillity. Bring a golf club and a picnic. Plane spotters’ paradise.

Every aspect of the garden is designed to be fun, especially for children but we’re all young at heart. It is tongue-in-cheek, it’s not to be taken too seriously, I’m not that kind of gardener, it is made for sharing and I really hope you enjoy it, half as much as I do every single day.
