Kitchen Garden and Pizza Piazza

Stone paving and a graveled drive run along the side of the house facing the land and beyond that, opposite the main kitchen, we have created a herb and salad garden. There are three raised beds, edged with chestnut off-cuts, and a further area before the piazza.

The garden can be easily watered from the buried rain collection tank or from mains-fed taps on the outside of the house and on the far corner of the piazza. The inspection hatch for the cesspit is situated beside the kitchen garden.

Beyond the kitchen garden we built a piazza with a water feature and a pizza oven. There is also a stone built seat in a walled corner and several flower beds, The piazza is cobbled with stones we gathered from the land. The water feature has a pump and fountain and there are also remote controlled lights, two power points and a tap. Three fig trees grow behind the oven.
