Progress of the garden at Hargarve Hall

May 2021

A BIG thank you to Borchards Landscapers for laying our lawn.

It took some work digging up the old play equipment foundations, leveling up the entire area, relocating the bark, laying sleepers, adding soil, and then returfing but we think it looks fab!

Roll on the next steps sorting out the boundaries!


It’s only been down a few weeks but the grass is looking lush!

Our new lawn has been laid!

Doesn’t it look great! We will be watering it regularly until its roots have grown, then we’ll be allowing a limited number of daytime only bookings over the summer, subject to government guidelines.

If you’re interested in hiring this space email us at


We have repurposed our old sleepers into flower bed borders!

Moving forward – removal of footings

Many years ago, the rear garden was used by a wonderful nursery that filled the exterior with outdoor play equipment. Sadly, after they left the footings remained which meant an uneven surface and created trip hazards everywhere!  The landscapers have now started removing these to ensure the ground can be levelled and safe for all.

The landscaping has begun in the rear garden!

So far all the bark and sleepers have been removed and what a difference this has made.

Looking forward to a new view!

We can’t wait to be able to stand in this spot in 24 months and see something completely different. What? We don’t know yet, which makes it all the more exciting!

Our big tree has had a trim!

Trimming for tree health is often referred to as pruning, and it involves removing branches that are diseased, infested or interfering with healthy growth. Regular trimming keeps trees strong, creates a healthier structure and reduces the need for future corrective pruning.

Volunteers hard at work!

Our paved area is looking very tidy today!

Garden Update!

Our garden project was halted due to the COVID19 pandemic and after a few months the ivy took over! With the help of some energetic volunteers, and following the appropriate social distancing guidelines we’ve cleared it all away.

We hope to start the garden project soon turning this wasteland into the community garden it deserves to be.

Our rear garden being used as a messy play zone!

Spring 2019

This year we will be focusing on turning our currently unused garden area into a space for all.

This page will track our progress and announce opportunities for the community to get involved.
