Blog 2. Relandscaping the upper garden (2)


1994. Having replaced the straight lines with curves we then discovered that we hadn’t put paths where the children wanted to go – we corrected that mistake! That’s me mowing the bottom lawn – the “children’s lawn”. The next year they lost interest in their chalet and the saplings we’d put in the lawn- they thought they were going to get instant tree houses – so the children migrated to the top lawn – flatter for playing cricket!

Spring 1995 and the shape is developing and we’d decided to rotovate the bottom lawn.

We interplanted with heathers between the conifers and acers. Everything needs pruning. The heathers had a short life though – we got the kids to prune them “don’t cut back into the old wood” they did – and that was the end of the heathers and the children’s involvement (did they plan that?!)
