There was a box hedge maze at the side of the house when I moved in. It made visitors exclaim and my grandsons enjoyed playing in it. But it never really appealed to me and clipping it was just another job to do without much in return. So, as it is outside the kitchen window and close to the back door, I have decided to turn it into a pottager garden with picking greens and herbs.
Here is what it looked like this morning...greatly in need of a haircut.
This what it looked like this afternoon with the centre removed and the side hedges clipped. The chooks were a great help finding worms, snails, slugs, slaters and the odd spider.
Now I will tidy up the site and map out the paths and beds. I will be able to reuse the pavers and bricks too. I think this is going to be my favourite project for a while.
