Posted by Alan Singleton on

Nice to get such positive feedback: Hello Alan. Attached are photos of garden assembled and firing on all fronts - About 5 weeks after planting with a combination of seeds & seedlings. I am in my mid-70’s and not particularly mechanically astute, but I found the instructions, labelling and additional telephone advice made assembly of the larger raised unit pretty easy on my own (only drawback nobody to yell at).

The Roffey family very happy with their Watersaver Gardens

Another happy customers reports back.

We haven't fully planted and mulched the top yet, but that's a weekend project for soon :) Quite a number of people, including our landscaper, hadn't seen gardens before, so we've been recommending you to people. Thanks again Judd
