Nick's garden plan

There is not a published plan for this garden yet.




About me
We've just moved to a new-build house in Norfolk and have had a great team of local landscapers set out the hardscaping, lawns and some planting for us. I'm hoping to develop the garden with separate rooms for interest and to encourage birds and helpful insects. We have planned two small raised vegetable beds, an arbour, morning coffee terrace and fun BBQ cabin along with a patio and lawn to sit out on.
