The Hancock Terrace

hancock terrace

We had made a terrace outside the kitchen window and because it gets shade I had thought it would be easy to keep the grass growing and being so close to the house would never forget to water it. However either too much shade, bad soil, constant walking on it and me forgetting to water it meant that it looked very down at heel. So decided to go for gravel. Levelled the ground and added an edge and then the gravel. On the right hand side we have decided to put box as the lavender hedge was getting very woody. Hopefully Bill will be trimming the boxes into a lovely row of “box clouds”. Mike and Judy who were here when we started the work said they would buy us some of the box and so we have named the terrace in their honour.
