First a "before"! This part of the garden used to be a silage pit many years ago, and in recent years held sheep during the lambing season.
And another one....the rough grass and weeds were killed and burned off.
Then last spring the borders were planted with perennials, trees and shrubs. Here are some in their first summer
And a bright fresh "lawn" and the veggie patch, which produced a wonderful crop.
I have one more border to plant up, as the stone dyke at the front of the garden was repaired during an island "workshop" in June last year, as regular readers will remember! (see more here and here)
So lots of work to do in the Spring and Summer!
