I actually watched it - don't normally see it 'live'. Didn't think the folly was particularly attractive, or rather, all the other stuff they built. The phrase 'less is more' might have been appropriate
Perhaps it's because I've moved so many times, but I kept thinking - they'll have a job selling that!
Each to their own though. If they love it, that's all that matters. It just looked cluttered rather than interesting - mainly because of moving the folly, so they had brickwork everywhere. I'd agree with Dove - the paving looked wrong
Re the cost - 25 grand doesn't buy a lot of hard landscaping and extras. People tend to underestimate that. As Dove says - every time a client changes their mind.....
The allotment was excellent though. I hope it continues to thrive, and people get plenty of pleasure from it. Hard graft but it's always worth it when you see the end result.
