Transformation of the previous Oil Tank Area


ScreenThe old oil tank has now gone and its replacement occupies a less prominent position at the back of the house. Len has demolished the decrepit shed and used its timber to create a screen giving the garden greater privacy. He grows runner beans against one side of the screen and a mixture of perennials and annuals on the other.


He levelled the ground, covering most of it in gravel but created a firmer base of pink slabs for tables and chairs. He built a brick barbecue out of washed bricks.
Pride of place however has to go to the fireplace built from broken slab. When logs burn in it it gives out considerable heat. Len is now looking for a suitable chimney.
