More work on the Henclosure! Today was spent digging out a trench for the new beech hedge which follows the curve of the mesh. The beech trees were VERY kindly donated by Chris and dug up from his wood. Hopefully it will soften and eventually hide most of the weldmesh panels. Yes! I KNOW it's a tad late in the season to be planting a hedge. It's just that none of this work was anticipated prior to Monsieur Le Reynard's murderous visit! I do need to paint the fence post finials without dripping paint on the new hedging plants.

Hopefully, it will even thicken out. From a seated position, half the vistas would have been obscured and we would have been left with a close-up view of a less than perfect and very old hedge.
It would be nice to find some pretty Victorian railings of a suitable height to disguise/obscure the rabbit netting.
