Clifton Garden    Bristol  Jun 2010

In this project a jumbled rockery at the rear of the garden was removed and the soil excavated to maximise flat space. A rubble wall was constructed to create a terraced border, solving the problem of height difference from the neighbouring garden. Any stone found in the excavation, no matter how large or small, was used in the wall, which whilst the planting matured was a great feature in it's own right. In order for the planting scheme to work a number of large shrubs and particularly two mature Acers were transplanted. Now the wall provides a great backdrop for the planting and the Acers which are flourishing.
