Anyhow that pipe in the middle is in the middle...of the potager which has a diameter of 4.2 metres.
I am thinking there will be three garden beds. The green strings you can just see are the centre of the three paths.
The design has to take into account that this is a main pathway from the back of the block to the front. I need to be able to bring the wheelbarrow through. The break in the hedge at the right also dictates where one path must go. It just wouldn't make sense to have more beds. However (isn't there always a but, or however?) my friend's mother has generously offered me a metal arbor thingy she hasn't used. I am hoping it has three 'legs' so it will suit my current design, but if it has four I will have to rethink.

not go through to the back yard though, so I still need to have a generous
path via the potager.
And to prove I did do some work here are the over 200 pavers I cleaned and moved today. There is also a small stack of half pavers and an array of triangles and other cut shapes.
I will be using these for paths and garden edges.
