Mill Dene Garden 21-09-2013
Mill Dene Garden – Hidden in the Cotswolds

Mill Dene is a romantic story of a young couple falling in love with each other and a beautiful Cotswold stone water mill.

Knowing nothing about gardening the Dares set about creating one of the most interesting gardens in the Cotswolds. It is personal, witty, surprising and of course, beautiful as well as horticulturally excellent. Features of this 1Ha (2 1/2 acres) garden include a misty grotto, a bog garden and stream. There are plenty of seats from which to enjoy the mill pond and its trout, kingfisher and ducks. It is an exercise in making the most of a difficult and steep sided site. It is also an exercise in creating something beautiful in which to meditate and to nourish the senses.

How to define it? An English country garden? Yes, but with fun and surprises: There is the relaxed and tranquil mill pond and grotto, then there are the hidden signs suggesting you go to Stoke on Trent (in the nicest possible way!) and a Fruit Garden with wonderful views over the hills but with gooseberry bushes under which were found the family grandchildren!! The herb potager has plants with medicinal, culinary and pot pourri uses but also aphrodisiacs!

    I think the difference between garden doors and french doors is if you Qui Qui on them. But seriously, I’ve never seen french doors where only one door opens. Both of mine open and there’s no center post.

    I feel like I’m missing a piece of information on how you got the frame prepared for the Garden Doors.  I watched your video about how to remove the sliding glass doors (very helpful btw) but I can’t seem to find the video on applying this membrane you speak of and other preparations you made to prepare the door frame.  Can you point me in the right direction as to which video to watch, please?

    When I shim I insert a shim from each side to press the frame out evenly? Is this just a thing for the camera or did you mess up?

    super clear instructions

    Since the shim is a wedge, isn’t it only tight at the inside edge? Does screwing it in at the outer edge cause the frame to twist any?

    Isn’t it a bit of a security concern having the hinges exposed outside.

    Good stuff . You guys make it look easy which is more $ for me when weekend warriors try it themselves and I have to fix it.

    Great video man.

    I only saw you drill some screws thru shims but not any "solid" nail/screws to secure the door frame…am I missing something here? just feel little bit curious.

    Darnit man, I totally need your skills here at my house, LOL. I am watching you and I gotta say, you make it like its nothing. I would be scratching my head for hours…

    Thanks for the video. Your door opened and closed fine but what if it had blinded? Would that be a sign that the casing wasn’t completely level, plum, and square?

    This was a great video series. Really helped me prepare for an upcoming project. Love watching real trades people practicing their art.

    I had a set of those Milwaukee drills once, and I found them to be very disappointing, slow, power lacking. I thought I had a bad set, but I see yours is the same. I went to Dewalt XRP, a lot heavier because of the NiCad battery but can blast a 3" screw in way faster and the pack lasts for a very long time. I hear the new Milwaukee’s are kickass though… but I guess pretty much anything new is superior to the older stuff.

    I have to remove and reinstall a glass sliding door and frame (out of square) these two videos really helped me. I particularly like how you occasionally add what to do in different circumstances or not having particular tools. Thanks.
