Design and planting of new gravel/dry garden

Before and after. In 2015, April, we bought our bungalow with an overgrown hedge and bushes all around. This is the same garden this summer after much hard graft by my husband and myself. We have gone for a dry gravel garden and I was pleased to see it flourish even when we had no rain for nearly eight weeks. Facing almost due south and with little shade. It’s been a big project but I’m thrilled with the results. Now planning another with different herbs in another area of the garden. Using lavender edging.

    Thank you for your kind words. It is so fulfilling to create a garden from scratch.
