Garden projects

There is day to day garden care - the gentle, enjoyable, pottering around dabbling with regular matters such as weeding, cutting, pruning, digging.

Then there is project work. Even after 27 years working in my garden, there are still major projects that I undertake which change or re-shape a whole area of the garden. Often these are connected so that they are undertaken all together, resulting in the garden suffering upheaval and becoming more akin to a building site than a place of tranquility and form.
