The owners decided that they did not need a lawn and instead built a curved raised bed in the centre of the back garden where they grow a variety of vegetables (including broad beans, peas and runner beans), fruit (strawberries and blueberries), a selection of herbs, salad leaves and tomatoes. These can all be picked as needed from just outside the back door.
The garden also has flowers to attract insects, a pond and a bog garden. Extensive use is made of recycled materials (wood chippings to form paths; compost bin made from recycled pallet wood); there are several water butts, compost bins and re-used containers for food growing.
