It is what it is. Newly built houses here in Ireland often look as if they have been dropped down from a great height with built-in foliage remover into (or should that be onto ?) the landscape.
It was no different for the property we bought and moved into in April 2013. Surrounded by a flat gravely area that could park 15 busses or thereabouts.
The driveway led straight towards the living area of the house. I wasn't having any of that.
View from the house towards old driveway.
And again from a slightly different angle. Spring/summer 2014
And this year. A bit windswept but nothing can now spoil my view from the sitting room.
To reposition the driveway there was quite a bit of rock breaking to be done.
On the far right is now the driveway.
Nothing like an abundance of flowers to lift the spirit and feed the bees.
Hope you enjoyed the progress. Come again soon.
