Rockery Rose bed created.


Today I’ve modified our rockery so I can fit a garden arch by our gateway, I’ve also created a Rose planter out of the rockery.

This picture is how the rockery originally looked!

In this picture you can see I’ve moved back a couple of the rocks to allow the arch legs to sit on a firm level surface.

I intend to fix a trellis onto the gate panel and train climbing white roses around and over the arch. It may be a few weeks before I build the arch as I haven’t quite yet made up my mind what sort to put in front of the gate. I’m also laying crazy paving in the back yard as when it’s wet it gets so muddy. I had all the slabs given to me!

On the house side of the gate I intend to fix a trellis to the front wall and plant more climbing white roses. Then eventually train those over the arch.
