The terms of the scheme are simple and include the following conditions:
The garden owner must match any funding from the DGT, either personally or from another source
Two members of the DGT Council will visit the garden before any grant is determined. The project will be revisited on completion, and the grant will be paid on the evidence of receipted invoices. The grant may also be paid in instalments if this is appropriate.
The garden should be open to the public or to DGT members for at least one day for the benefit of the Trust.
The decision of the Trustees is final.
Note that grants are given only to gardens on the English Heritage Register and the DGT list of Local Gardens and Landscapes of Special Historic Interest.
