Terram Against The Swamp

It’s possible that there will be no surprises left after this project has been blogged to death!

However….as the yew tree was revealed, so the extent of the dogwoood root system was revealed…it’s what makes it look so Louisiana swamp! So digging some of it out, and putting root suppressing Terram down, just for under the path, means that when it grows up in summer it’ll work as a screen, I hope!

The boardwalk has 2 very distinct terrains…BOG

And having had some horrible rain at the begnning of the month, straight onto very hard, dry ground, therefore with little chance of it soaking away, we now know the planned ‘end’ of the boardwalk would be under water in winter so the upside (yes Chris there is an upside!) is we can adjust the last section

And a wee reverse picture to totally give all the views away!
