Swimming Pool Borders


I was down gardening in Studland yesterday and couldn’t resist taking some photos of the swimming pool borders that I designed and planted a couple of years ago and last year – they’re establishing nicely.

So I broke out the hedge-trimmer, brush-cutter, chainsaw and loppers and hacked it all back. The quince trees are now free..!
