The trees in front of the cabin had caused problems for some years. Originally intended as miniature specimens, they had grown quite large and blocked the view of our layout. It was suggested that a rockery would improve the overall appearance for the public, improve visibility from the cabin and so give extra security.
After much discussion the trees to be removed were selected. They had previously been pruned back but even then they were just too big. So Norman, Tom and other helpers cut them down and cleared the stumps. The ground was then prepared, rocks selected and compost acquired so that Glenis, Norman and Tom could create the new rockery.
The cat looked a bit worried but those trees had to go.
Much improved view from the cabin.
All health and safety regulations were observed.
Tom set about the other problem tree.
Helped by Glenis.
While Norman got more compost.
Final touches and a little wizardry.
Before planting could begin.
And a well deserved rest.
