Early days in the Lane – Before the first long hot summer

We arrived at Uccello Lane in  September 2012 and the garden was lush and green – overgrown but ready for work.

As the summer approached we were mindful that the growth had to be cleared back – in case of snakes and the like. Also we were constantly discovering plants hidden under trees or being strangled by natives left to overtake some areas. Six huge skips were filled quickly as we kept going deeper and deeper into the garden.

An amazing irrigation system was found plus there were at least 4 big water tanks which were filled from the runoff from the roof. Both these were a blessing in this first summer.
