About the Rathfelder Project

This garden was designed by Mary Maurel and built in 2011 for a new house.

There was  major excavation on the site to level a large area for the house which created two problems to deal with. Firstly the cut exposed the clay sub base and a major agricultural drainage system had to be installed and lots of good topsoil added. Secondly  a very steep embankment was created.

Mary came up with the creative idea of the curved stone walls to which is a real feature in this garden now.
