|Acer Palmatum Seiryu|
It was nice to see that not all the colour had disappeared from the garden when we returned from our hols! How different this country really is from the mountains, rain forests, deserts and volcanoes we visited!
Having caught up on office jobs, laundry and sleep; it was time to commence the next garden project - namely TERRACING!
The greenhouse path border was duly emptied of all plants and shrubs. Excess turf was removed and all were laid in, on and around the vegetable patch. In fact, it no longer looks like a veg patch at all.
After a worrying few days not being able to find any really flat walling stone anywhere and being quoted silly prices for less than ideal material; we came up trumps!
|Border awaiting terracing|
We found the most perfect stone only a stone's throw away - at Beach Hay, Far Forest! It's so perfect that Chris builder and I plan to go and choose pieces ourselves on Monday morning at 8:30am - yawn! We reckon on about 10 tons. Yes, I know it sounds a lot but it's heavy old stuff and Chris is re-doing the grass steps in stone as well as the terracing and greenhouse path. Besides, it means the rest of the York stone flags can go round the house.
For the followers who are wondering where we sneaked off to, have a look at:
