The Garden Barrows

As you walk down the Garden Path, you will weave between trees and MOUNDS covered with flowers and low plants. The mounds are creative and artistic replacements to standard planting beds or planting pots.

As there is not natural dirt native to the garden, it must be made. and as the garden terrain is too hard for serious excavation, the garden relies on a series of raised planting areas. 

These mounds are built up on core piles of gravel and rubble, and are coated in freshly applied dirt. This functions as a very effective drainage system. The plants are place in the fertile soil and they themselves prevent the remaining dirt from washing away.

You will find them covered with a wide range of plant life including:_____. And during the spring and summer they become the residence of our gnomes and fairies.
