The family decided that they would like fish in the pools so the we planted them up to make a good habitat for the fish and to enhance the terrace

These beds are covered in weed suppressing membrane and covered in bark chippings for minimal maintenance.

Building a raised fern bed

Building a raised fern bed

The raised bed was built over very dry ground, full of tree roots and some concrete slabs.

Before planting the ferns, the raised bed was filled with leaf mould and compost made from the stump grindings of the old conifers. This compost is very moisture retentive and will help the ferns become quickly established even in the dry shade of the woodland garden
