Apologies and, as my dear old Houzz friend Jane would’ve said, with respect, I always feel sad when I see a well established garden totally overhauled. The communities of microorganisms, invertebrates, beneficial fungi and more that have been destroyed doesn’t bear thinking about. It’s not that this isn’t a pretty enough design but it would be wonderful if people understood the web of life underneath.

It's fab, but, like rallyray, I wonder of the cost. I have just had a tiny path built which cost £3,000 so I suspect the above would have cost five-six figures. That said, it is fantastic and I am sure the owners love it. If I had that kind of money I'd probably pay that much too. People rarely give figures on Houzz which is a shame since it does help us mere mortals have some idea of what it costs to do things. It's not just nosiness.
