I built a little square garden which was actually where the gravel was dumped for a concrete building project. As I lacked a good place to put my small but growing collection of Sempervivum and other hardy succulent plants like Jovibarba I started keeping them in the Square.

Eventually, I found that I liked it so much that it became a permanent bed. The gravel is the perfect place for these kinds of plants that love good drainage, and as it gets full sun all day, it’s like a little bit of a mountain top.

My Square garden is constantly changing with the seasons, and I add more new varieties as I find them.
