In July 2013 we decided to remove everything from the bank and start again. There was nothing really growing and the soil was very poor.
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.
By late spring in 2019 after the hot summer we had some good rainfall – and “The Bank” was lush. Everything was in flower the wisteria, snowball trees, lily pillis to bring the birds and lavender.
“The Bank” is viewed from the study, the craft room or the conservatory. It is always on show – but it was not always this way – in fact the exact opposite!.
