Our Diary for HFH, Horsted Keynes

These new works were started by our Peter and Will in early April assisted by our labouring team.Ian visited and met the clients and agreed a scheme to develop the complete front and rear garden.

Hopefully through this page you will see the garden evolve! The initial design sketches and some of the original photos are below........Ian
