Through a contact made through the Landscape Juice Network, the initial site visit highlighted some serious concerns in so far that the plot given was severely unconsolidated, with over 3 metres of dumped mixed soils, (in the first week of construction a mis placed step would sink to over a metre!).
Subsequently over 150 man hours were spent in digging, drainage and installing foundations to allow for the desired garden. (The design also had to change due to these problems).
However with 1 day to go before opening on the 29th March, the garden was finished.
(The first 2 and last 2 Photos were taken from approximately the same location).
Thanks must go to Charlotte Duriez, (LJN member) and Dominique Andre from the INH, Angers. And Remy Cautron stagier with Chaumont Sur Loire from Blois.
