|Year round beauty
Hidden away in a quiet corner of east Dorset, Knoll is the garden of internationally
acclaimed plantsman, Neil Lucas.
The UK’s leading authority on ornamental grasses, Knoll is a four-acre showcase for Neil’s naturalistic style. Visiting Knoll offers both wonderful seclusion and the opportunity to discover a new way of gardening; using beautiful plants to create your own affordable, wildlife friendly and truly sustainable garden.
Knoll has one of the country’s most extensive collections of grasses. Set against a backdrop of rare and unusual trees and shrubs they create stunning year-round displays, clearly demonstrating the versatility and drama that grasses can bring to any garden.
Alongside the grasses you’ll find an increasing range of native plants and perennials coming together in glorious drifts of colour in Knoll’s version of a modern naturalistic style.
Described by Neil as “a garden in progress”, Knoll is a real working garden. Alongside the established Mediterranean style gravel garden, the Bark Circle and striking Dragon Garden you’ll find new plantings and themes as the garden evolves and Neil explores new ways of growing and combining plants for maximum effect throughout the year.
