More about 24 Old Greasby Road
A triumph of adversity rescuing a boggy, heavily-clayed and flood-damaged urban garden and transforming it into a peaceful and productive location which provides both a place of relaxation and a canvas for gardening creativity.
The main garden incorporates attractive secluded sitting, entertainment and relaxation spots, where the garden can be appreciated from different aspects and as the mood takes.
Gently curved gravel paths, planters, herbaceous borders and a boardwalk lead to the productive kitchen garden area of raised beds, fruit trees and herbs and provides year-round access to what once was a no-go area in the wet months of the year.
Elements of the garden include curved and raised beds, a water harvesting system, espalier bed and a herb wheel.
There is a range of wildlife: the small pond encourages frogs; songbirds, wrens and goldfinches visit regularly and the bees work steadily on the lavender, roses and alliums.
