Our garden is a veritable sun trap at any time of day, as it charts its course from the east over the gravel garden (where a young weeping willow grows) to the west where the lawns are laid. There is a Gazebo in the gravel garden with built-in seats for those requiring protection from the sun. There is also, by way of description a veranda which is a covered decked area along side the pond, which is one of the coolest most relaxing places in the garden. Alternatively there is a shaded area under a line of Fir trees next to our vegetable garden. We supply tables, chairs, benches, barbeque.
