Fourteen months ago and the front garden was overgrown and sulking. Last summer it exploded with growth – grass, flowers, vegetables and weeds. Weeds so high and prolific we stopped seeing them. During the winter we’ve cleared and cleared and we have a blank slate, ready for the garden to go back in. We discovered an old dry stone wall which divided the garden in two which had collapsed. There will be paths and new lawn and the dry stone wall is being rebuilt. A work in progress but we’re getting there.
