The garden… viewed from the study, the craft room or the conservatory we call “the bank”. It is always on show – it is blossoming, blooming with flowers and birds – but it was not always this way – in fact the exact opposite!.So in early days of Uccello Lane – Heather Allen was given this task – a cottage garden on “the bank” please!
First we had to clear away the existing trees and weeds. Trav’s Trees came with their chainsaws and this was the first of many visits to maintain and manage trees at Uccello Lane.
A cottage garden was planted so that the view out was like a picture. Within 6 months the bank was covered with flowers and greenery. A bird feeder was installed and the yellow cheeked black cockatoo and King Parrots became regular visitors.
