Overview of Garden
Some years ago I built a 10m foot bridge across the gully to give better access to the land at the back which is where I've established my garden.
Because it was on such a steep slope I decided to terrace it using Stevensons Keystone retaining stones. It took me more than 2 years to build. It was a lot of hard work and very slow, as each block had to be carried in by hand in a wheel barrow from the front of the property.
The end result is a number of separate garden areas which makes the whole setup rather interesting, especially for first time visitors to the garden.
Using photoshop I have tried joining a few pictures together to show a more complete view of the garden. However this view still does not show the new Top Garden which is over the brow of the hill (top right).
