Soil types: Clay

Soil drainage: Well-drained

Been here 5 years and still changing things. Took out lots of old stuff and put in lots - not always wisely! Have trees too close and clashing colours. I back onto the railway but it's not visible. Have garden arranged in different areas - dry bed, herbaceous, woodland, kitchen, secret. Size takes everyone by surprise as I have no front garden and no indication that there is anything more than a 50ft garden at the back!
