The garden was 100% lawn when I moved in so I commissioned a design from Super Nature Garden Design. At the time I wanted a low maintenance garden that could also be used as an extension of my living space. More recently I've been studying Permaculture and trying to apply the principles within the layout of the garden, experimenting with inter-cropping mainly soft fruit. When I moved in the soil was very heavy, with a high clay content so I've been trying to improve the growing conditions by increasing the organic matter in the soil and by using plants such as field beans.
