The new gate was an obvious spot for deer to enter the garden so we made the gate higher with wooden rails to make it more secure.
Once the new gate was finished we altered the fence line to open-up the area and give us space to add an interpretation board at a later date.
With the gate and fence completed it was time to start gravelling the new path.
We continued gravelling through the gate and joined up with one of the original garden paths.
Once we'd finished gravelling we moved the shrubs that we'd dug out at the beginning into a new position behind the fence to the right of the new gate.
By next summer the areas of bare soil should be nicely greened up and the new entrance to Stagshaw should look even more inviting.
