As there were some old bags of green slate lying around, it only made sense to use this as the surface of the seating area. Using green slate for the bulk of the seating area, I also used a mix of plum slate, and blue slate to create some definition.
Planted adjacent to the walkway leading to the house is a mixture of trailing herbs, the shown will hopefully entwine with the logs and brances. As you may have noticed there are various querky "ornaments" dotted around the garden which seemed a useful way of adding instant impact (considering the use of young plants), as well as being unique points of interest.
This is how the garden currently looks overall, as you can see the pond will be raised, meaning I need to lay some foundations and begin building the wall before doing anything else with the pond.
Once the wall is at least partially built (side closes to the seating) I can create the path running through to garden. Seems like a handy use of time whilst waiting for the concrete to dry.
