Week 9: Finished Edging “Main Avenue”, transplanting Runner Beans and building a Pumpkin Patch.

Whilst inspired by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, I decided to edge the “main avenue” that seems to dominant my plot now. The main path is probably too wide (given that a wheelbarrow is wider at the top than the bottom) so it doesn’t need to be as wide as it probably is: so reducing it by adding edging and planting dark black grass to give a clear contrast to my raised beds (Planiscapus Nigrescens).
