Central Flower Beds
Our centre flower beds were mainly populated by fuschias which had been planted by our (then) gardener there some years ago. Each year they were becoming more and more sparse and were being continually trampled on by kids. The surrounding paths were also badly in need of a jet wash having accumulated years of moss and were a serious trip hazard. Sadly our caretaker, who along with other duties had also been looking after the fuschias as best he could, passed away and so we decided to overhaul the area to make it easier to maintain. In memory of his services and as a mark of respect we had two large potted fushcia plants placed on the new gravel beds.
These photos show the intermediate stage of the overhaul and what the area looks like now.
