It was time to tackle the one remaining corner of the garden we'd hardly touched since we moved in here four years ago, i.e. the southern boundary of the original back garden.
The old fence had been in a sorry state for a long while, and was leaning over even further after the winter winds. Inside the boundary was planted with a mishmash of old trees and shrubs which weren't flourishing at all. It was quite a dark and forbidding place, even in the summer months.

As a related project, earlier in the week we'd bought around twenty used paving slabs in an eBay auction, and these would be used to finally cover over the old pond we'd drained and half-filled-in during the autumn of 2013, which can be seen behind the apple tree.
