Advent Candle with lights to night

Our beautiful gardens are nearly finished.  

For the last month, Garden Designer Fi Boyle and the Team from Natural Habitats Landscape have been working hard on our new gardens.  Fi has designed wonderful garden areas for all the senses, which are low maintenance and have interest all year round.  We are looking forward to seeing them bloom in the spring and summer next year.

           

Who you gonna call when the delivery man won’t deliver?
