The first thing to be put in place was the main retaining wall to create the terracing and make the garden into a useable space. Pulling footings on a curve on a slope was not the easiest challenge, especially during the winter months when the ground was boggy.
We were lucky that the farmer next door allowed us to use his field for access making the task somewhat easier!
Second stage was the construction of the raised decking and steps down to the summer house, you can see from the images that this was quite a large task, and due to the nature of the land (mostly clay) the post work all had to be augered in using our micro-digger.
Final stages included turning the bog into a beautiful pebble stream and turfing out the top level.
