Garden maintenance & developement.

it is my intention to make Thursday a regular day for garden maintenance starting this Thursday  7th  at 13:00. all welcome to help. unfortunatly i was unable to attend to the garden on the 14th & 21st of June due to ilness however on the 28th i managed to clear a path across the wild area and layed some logs as a boundry it was limited how much i could achieve as no one else turned up .

 

Work has begun managing the garden, the bay tree has been cut back & ground cleared revealing a larger paved area then previously thought. it is suggested a path mowed diagonally across the wild area creating a path to the seating making the garden more user friendly. with recovered logs marking the boundries. a small area to the left of the seating is to be allocated to HFT. for a bug hotel & small garden, incorporating a small water feature.

Long straight recovered Bay branches to be woven into a fence to be installed behind the seating to afford more privacy. 

WORK IN PROGRESS

GARDEN SEATING  IN MEMORY OF OUR FRIEND DAVID HAS BEEN DELIVERY and is in situe.

It has been suggested that the garden should be developed. This Tuesday  29th May work began cutting back the overgrown area & clearing the ground to the right hand side at the rear of the garden.

a small space is to be made available to HFT to develop as a bug hotel with a small water feature to encourage birds & other creatures. they also requested for themselfs to plant a few flowering plants. so far iv'e had a positive response. it is also suggested a small childrens garden area to the right of the new seating. any suggestions would be gratefully received.

The next working party for the garden will be this Sunnday 3rd June  after meeting for worship. all volunteers welcome.

An enquiries concerning the garden  please contact me Tony W-H 'link below'.
