Muddy garden Cwm Tydu

Mud, glorious mud….

Recent heavy rainfall has caused us a lot of problems with our current job – creating a lawn, seating area and fire-pit. Sliding around in the mud carrying blocks and stone is an alarming business, but the ground is too wet to bring any machines on. Happily, the Landworks team are indomitable, and work progresses regardless.

Firepit stage 1

Establishing a firm, level base under the watchful eye of a dedicated collie.

The basic structure is now complete, and features air holes, a steel mesh, natural stone exterior and attractive capping stones. I’ll update you further when we’ve built the larch and gravel surrounds. Weather permitting….

Firepit pointing

Pointing the stones gives a smooth, organic finish to the fire-pit.

Happy Birthday, Landworks!

 

wildlife sensory garden

Wildlife sensory garden

It’s 15 years since we designed and built our very first garden. It was a sensory garden for the Wildlife Trust, built with the help of volunteers and the local gardening club. It featured plants to stimulate the senses and provide food and shelter for wildlife. Fifteen years later, we have made gardens for local businesses, for charities and for private houses, and we still enjoy it just as much as we enjoyed that first one all those years ago!
