I have made a new village garden with the help of two very talented, imaginative, and efficient people - Jason Lock and Johan Van den berg-Hider. The main part of the garden faces the village street, and there is also a small 'terrace' at the back of the house, looking over the fields. The house used to be next to the pub and most of garden faces the road, but the clever design has given us privacy, and it is very beautiful.
