It now comprises of a stumpery/fern/woodland garden under three mature ash trees with a sloping bank at the bottom, an area for the children in the middle with an apple tree, herbaceous border and hopefully a wendy house next year, and a grassy mound and lawn planted with chionodoxia, galanthus and fritillaria meleagris leading to a pond with small rockery and a herbaceous border built on a raised garden with dry stone retaining wall at the front. Steps down lead to a gravel area enclosed with dry stone wall at the back door of the house. We are renting the property but the landlords are happy to let me experiment!
