Think Hefty may have thought it was a Heffalump Trap
All sorts of stuff going around the edge, there are already ferns, vincas, pulmonaria creeping campanula etc - at the back a tiny thicket of coppiced hazel is planned, and some sedges will find there way there too
The planting is going to go right down to the water's edge except where the pebbly gravelly beach is going.
I've got some biggish holey stones that originally came from the North Norfolk beach (appropriated by my gardening Granny back in the early 60s when people could take stones from the beach) these stones went from Granny's garden to Ma's garden and now to mine. I've also bought some biggish pebbles which will go with them to provide perches for bathing birds with short legs etc.
The builders are out there now, cutting back the liner
