building a dream

Several people have contacted me asking how I "built" my garden. Here are a few pictures from start to finish. Firstly I built my "Potting Shed" then extended the decking to accommodate a greenhouse. I then dug out the growing beds and sectioned them off with "Ecolat Kantband" made from a flexible, hardwearing recycled material. I used the same band to outline the entire area of the garden, deciding to follow the natural form, then lining the areas in between the plant beds with ground sheeting and then mulch. I bought a machine to make our own wood chips as we have access to any amount of forest. I had dreamed of having hens and built a small cottage for them. Sadly I became quickly allergic to their feathers so rehoused them with a family member so can still enjoy fresh eggs! I changed the henhouse interior to accommodate a Bradley Smoker and now can enjoy smoked meat, fish and cheese. #Ecolatkantband #BradleySmoker #Gardening #emmastrandbergbooks #gardendesign
