Hi thanks to each of you for the all the advice.
Yes Clara, you got that right; well spotted. I am closer to the sea in the Greenhill area.
Digging out a bed makes sense really. Recently walking through Merion Square I was very taken by the beds of heathers and miniature pines, at least that's what I think they were. I decided there and then that's what I want to do. They seemed so easy on the eye and very peaceful to sit and look at. So, instead of a raised rockery, I intend to lay an area out flat and make a feature out of a rock or two or a piece of old wood.
I did like the old fence; it had character but it was begining to merge with the bacground and I had to think security. I spend the day putting on a coat of Fence Life. There are eight panels (sixteen sides) and I got six sides done. My arms are sore but had to take advantage of the weather.
