A wood craft experiment! Felix and I used hand carving axes to hew this beam from a poplar log. Blimey it was hard work!
I have designed and built many gardens over the years and more water features and ponds than I care to count! I am now engaged in my most ambitious project to date – landscaping the 3 hectares at Shangri La Farm where I have now planted well over 3000 trees, including 2200 British native species kindly supplied by The Woodland Trust, along with many other specimen trees grown in the nursery from seed. The aim is to create a unique landscape – partly wildlife haven and partly architectural design.
