I agree with Sandy. It’s very nice, but the box and cold frame take up a lot of roaming space. And a little less grass and a bit more soil, pebbles, rocks etc to give a little more variety and textur and some planting e.g lavender , hebe, Rosemary, grasses, which they like to hide under. As Sandy has said , I’m sure this could be extended.

Also must say, lovely torts
