The vision

Building a little piece of paradise

This page is about the journey of turning a standard place into my personal paradise; step by step. The former farm house ground was neglected for a while. The back area was used for ponies and is now an unused field. While the direct back yard was mainly used to host one big aviary, the front garden was made from gravel. Step by step, these areas will be turned into nature, again. Want to join the journey?

Project Kitchen Garden

The area next to the house is turned into a kitchen garden. This is the smallest and therefore fastest project.

The back yard is turned into a cottage garden mainly holding bird and insect friendly plants. The center will be a pergola sitting area.
