We extended the planting bed underneath the big black bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra), having removed the step in the patio. It needed to be tidied up a bit.

This is the part of the garden that can be seen through the back windows of the lounge, so it was quite important to get it right. There were a few plants that were right underneath the bamboo. The plan was to extend the planting bed to give them more light and space. The area is big enough now for more plants, if we are ever allowed to go out and buy any.
