Ballycarbery garden's Profile

Where I live: Cahersiveen, Co Kerry Member since: January 2009 Last here: 439 days 12 hours ago
About my garden: Currently establishing several shelter belts of trees using mostly pines and broadleaves such as Alder, Ash, Birch and Sycamore.
More about me: My garden on the Kerry coast has lots of space but is in the formative stages of becoming a large garden. The shelter is getting established and the next step will be to develop the content and design of the garden. I enjoy gardening in large open areas especially with trees.
