New retaining walls and steps to wildlife garden
A quite p[lace to sit and ponder
Planting now finished Paul and team can now lay new turf
Inset stepping stone leading through rose pergola and down to sunken garden
Steps formed using reclaimed York stone in keeping with local vernacular
Inset seats constructed in sustainable American Yellow Pine
Newly created wildlife pond
Grotto pond under top terrace multiple layers of newly created terracing. Also inste seat with views out to the rollings hills of the peaks.
Area to driveway which will become a a wildlife garden with the introduction of bug boxes and animal shelters. The layout for this area is completely rethought with the introduction of a more level finish and steps to a sheltered seat. The garden will also benefit from a hazel hurdle screen to the perimeter for shelter and screening
The main garden as it was with rose bed to fore. This will be re positioned to sit behind the existing rose pergola and the soil re-turfed
Sloped rockeries and pond all removed with the pond enlarged and rockeries replaced with single level beds for ease of maintenance. Seats will be inset into new walls to pond path.
Further rockery beds to be removed and stone walls built to crate single level planting beds for ease of maintenance.
