Shortridge Hall is a private residence with grounds requiring maintenance all year round. The garden is 3.5 acres of formal garden and a further 2.5 acres of roadside woodland. The garden was designed by Adam Frost and is still at an early stage. Most of the planting is competed, but some of the lawns and meadows are still to be seeded. The garden includes a walled garden for vegetables and flowers and a glass house for propagation. The garden is private and maintained for the enjoyment of the family.
