Two weeks ago I started the process of removing the grass from my back garden. More space for display and additional drainage due to seasonal flooding were my aims.
This was the starting point.
First step was getting a micro digger in.
Next up was 16 tonne of stone, some decorative some for drainage.
Then it was time to start adding trees. I opted to use temporary bench legs while I figure out the layout that suits me best. I’ll replace them when I’m 100% on the spacing etc. I’ve also a few monkey poles to add and some underplanting. I’m also looking for a nice piece of bog oak to use as a sculpture/feature. I’m still looking.
That’s the front part of the garden nearly complete. Next up is the back with a new Polytunnel.
