In the gar­den

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

The south fac­ing gar­den was a blank can­vas when the own­ers moved in. There are now raised beds and box hedg­ing.

Ven­dor Ju­lia Gavriel re­calls: “We enjoy gar­den­ing but have very lit­tle time so we de­signed the gar­den to be a low main­te­nance kitchen gar­den that is kept un­der con­trol with an hour or so a week in the sum­mer.

“We planted es­palier ap­ple and pear trees against the wall in ad­di­tion to plum, cherry, fig and mul­berry trees.

“The paved ar­eas are spa­cious enough for a large ta­ble. When we first moved in the gar­den felt very bar­ren, but now that the gar­den has ma­tured we enjoy the birds that visit as well as the pro­duce.”
