Construction of new raised bed corner of front lawn. (May 2006)

Constructed from 100mm machine round posts, lined with exterior ply, covered in butyl liner to extend life.

First planting in 2006 was a St.Georges flag made up of Red & White Impatiens, no images of this but the bed has now performed well for 3 World Cups, the flowers lasting longer than than the England team! 2010 & 2014 are shown below.
