The ground required drainage, levelling and major soil improvement work before planting. These pictures were taken whilst work was still under way in the garden in late September 2012. With plants still to fill out, the garden already has structure and colour and plenty of berries to attract the birds, who did not take long to arrive. The sheltered patio is carefully placed to enjoy the lovely views without suffering from the prevailing wind. Planting areas include a circular cottage garden lawn, a Spring and woodland garden and a windbreak of hardy scented roses.
