The four town gardens are conveniently located within 100m of each other in St Ronan's Road, Southsea, PO4 0QE.
Each has a distinctive style, with different designs showing what can be achieved in an urban setting. The open gardens are part of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) which sees gardens across England and Wales welcoming about 750,000 visitors every year. An entry fee is charged which is donated to the NGS (including from the sale of teas and plants).
85 St Ronan's Road is a city garden with a classical twist, featuring a Neptune water feature in a pool of smoke. There is exceptional design at 27 St Ronan's Avenue where landscaping has been used to create a modern family concept with exuberant planting. The ‘inside-out' garden at 87 St Ronan's Road captures busy urban living at its best, with an impressive dining area and sitting room with a permanent outside fireplace. 28 St Ronan's Avenue showcases a mixture of tender, exotic and dry-loving plants along with more traditional incl king protea, bananas, ferns, agave, echeveria and echiums
