Dear Dug

 

On the occasion of enjoying a sunny day in our wonderful garden we

 

thought we’d write you a quick thank-you email. 

 

We really absolutely love

 

the garden.  Our highlights are the “parent-deterrent” monkey bars; the green

 

roof for the Wendy house; the polished stones; but most impressively the big

 

round steps from the house (when everyone else we spoke to suggested decking),

 

which everybody is in awe of!  You really listened to what we wanted, went away

 

to think about it, and came back with a brilliant design!

 

Your re-use

 

philosophy chimes with our own thinking. Also, we had dreaded the actual work

 

taking place, but to our great surprise it turned out to be sheer joy!

 

The

 

new garden has had a profound effect on our home life: everyone suddenly wants

 

to spend lots of time in the garden!  The children love the little features you

 

designed in for them: the dens, monkey bars, the “secret path” behind the tree,

 

….  This had meant we have been more active than before.  All of us have

 

discovered the joys of outdoor dining, although our tendency towards eating in

 

the garden is now so strong that we had to run for emergency shelter from the

 

elements more than once.  The washing line works a treat.  And we now feel like

 

we can invite the kids’ friends to come round and play in our new garden without

 

being embarrassed!  

 

In a small but enthusiastic way, we have all become

 

gardeners. We have enjoyed our first home-grown fruit and veg, and our latest

 

achievement is a tiny pond (actually a washing-up bowl) that a frog moved

 

into!

Finally, it has been a tough year for us in other ways and the new

 

garden has helped to balance that out.  Thank you from us all.  Your garden has

 

somehow made us feel that the weather has been good this summer. The only

 

downside is that Ana has found weeding therapeutic and can spend many a happy 15

 

minutes being distracted by it when she should be doing something more

 

pressing!!
