Everything is scaled 1/12. The lawn is just amazing. The grass is a variety named Bent.

This is a scene of the first streaker on a football field (so they say). :)

They mow it twice a week in summer with a small battery powered mower.

It's very hard to grow a hedge that's 6 inches tall so the hedges end up a foot tall and twice the height of the people. So not everything is 1/12 scale.

The garden has about 50 scenes from different villages in England.
