reclaimed sleepers
Previously a neglected corner of nettles and broken oddments of walling stone, this border is at the main entrance of the farmhouse. The reclaimed sleepers enabled us to raise the height of the border and then to add new soil and compost. Without this new plants would have struggled to survive in poor stony soil amongst the roots of an established ash tree. They also provide essential edging to separate out the gravel drive on one side and the bark path the horses use between the stables and the paddock.
