Fencing and levelling

The ditching and draining done – next came the gates and fences to keep the rabbits out, and then the levelling of the ground and first cultivation of the soil to relieve the compaction.



A ditch was dug at the south end and lined with a waterproof membrane. The ditch led into a hole dug for the pond.

Still fine weather and a great effort from the farm.

In the distance – the met tower and the aphid trap, which looks like a long pole with a funnel on top.

Once the area was fenced …

Next … Hedge, wall and tree
