It was hubbies idea to build a raised bed for the olive tree. I wasn't sure, but yet again he has proved me wrong, I think it looks great.
We used our wonderful builder who is no landscaper but when I asked him if he would do the work,
He also put up the arch I bought last year.
The neighbours got a guy in, to put up the new fence.
You can see the old raised bed
posh huh! I need to sort the posts out, I tried wire brushing the old paint off but that didn't work, so I need to find some paint the colour of concrete posts lol!
The winter protection is now going to be easier due to a clever idea from my builder. Inside the sleepers he has attached clips to hold copper pipe, which I can attach varying lengths as the plants grow.
and he presto one frame
with one builder in the back ground.
I had been worrying how I was going to construct the frame as the plants got bigger and I am no builder. I am a bodger! So this takes all the worry away.
I still have some planting to do down by the pond in the bed that has remained unplanted whilst I waited for the new fence to be put up. But all in all I think next year could be rather good!
