Now it's starting to get dark far too early I've just remembered about this post hah.
A few things changed since the last photo, mainly the decision not to have a pond!
Here's how we're looking:
As you can see the seating area has been moved to where we were storing sandstone, wicker fencing masks the cold metal bars and mirrors help to keep the space feeling open.
The pond has been filled in with a small amount of compost, small pieces of sandstone and any leftover large pieces we had, and has then been planted up with alpine plants and what I know as Lucifer grass (or monbreacher, spelling?)
A variety of potted plants has been used to soften areas where planting would prove difficult.
Regular garden gravel has been used to create a path, as well as 2 large pieces of nicely weathered sandstone. Left over bark (from the original clearance) has been used to help add contrast and to hopefully help keep the weeds out (some of the old weed surpressant matting was used also).
