With all of the skree (small, white gravel) brushed into place and all the native plants happily plugged into their new home, this dull, empty lot is now the setting for a garden you can stroll through all afternoon.

~ PHASE ONE ~

Using the natural stone that was otherwise scattered around the property, a barrier is created between three new gardens and the walkways that surround them.  Fibreglass-based landscaper's fabric is cut to size and laid first, before any installation is made.  The dirt in the gardens was mixed separately - sheep manure and black earth, at a ratio of 1:3.
