The Venus garden, named after the shy Venus statue featured, is arranged around a simple rectangle of lawn. Venus stands in front of a wall at the northern end of the garden which is part of the tractor shed. I enjoy welding so created a metal grille in the window of the tractor shed, made from discarded pieces of steel retrieved from the railway line in the valley below our property. Smaragds and Julias roses, bordered by a Buxus hedge, form the garden bed by the the garage and workshop. The urn on this wall is the focal point of the Arch axis. Westwoods and Nitida hedges form the garden by the arbour. My late uncle Rob, a master carpenter, made the arched cedar gate and in the process passed on some of his valuable knowledge.
