During a break in the rains last week I nipped out to take this shot of my garden, the roof tops and the floods beyond (normally this valley is pasture). At the front of the picture you can see my work in progress. It’s a tiny plot I’m working on (about 3.5m by 5m) but progress is slow because of big landscaping, rubble and access issues. Even to get this far I’ve had to demolish an old chicken shed, lift two trees, take down and move two compost heaps, build another and pick axe endless amounts of rubble out of the ground. This is hard work but its what transformational gardening is all about. Creating beautiful space out of failing landscapes. Follow my story in Garden News magazine once every fortnight with additions on the blog and I’ll show you how to create beautiful garden spaces in a way which will help to prevent floods like the one you see here getting worse!
