Just a few days after we began work on our urban garden the construction of the boundary walls are nearing an end and all the block-work for the raised beds has been completed.
Into week two and construction of the new wall is well advanced. As the wall nears completion it becomes more apparent just how much the boundary can influence the overall impression of a space especially in a confined urban garden.
Wall or fence, there is a lot to be admired in having a consistent and clearly defined boundary. Attention to detail is important and as is so often the case, the detail within the final finish does influence the final results. For a better and more enduring finish for our wall in this project we have applied a sand cement finish. The rendered finish makes the raised bed and boundary walls come to life. Such a quality finish to the walls immediately makes them more attractive.
With the rending applied to both the walls & raised beds our attention now switches to the other main and important element of the / any garden i.e. the patio areas.
