Sparrow & Finch Babington Hen House

The Babington Hen house - design inspired by a Sussex barn. We love this from Sparrow & Finch. Not only is it cleverly conceived but it is a stunning structure for your garden. It houses six hens and is easily moved around. Painted in Farrow & Ball Pigeon which we think is a colour that sits comfortably in a garden. Thinking of introducing hens to your home & garden? Or do yours need an upgrade? Click the link for more details of this gorgeous hen house. http://sparrowandfinch.co.uk/babington-hen-house.html but hurry, there is already a six week waiting list for these. P.S. Never house a hen alone - they need like minded companions! For housing hens responsibly get in touch via our contact page for useful links and information.

when it rains it pours... and then what?

Saturday, May 14, 2011 - 16:47

Another unexpected turn in our UK climate - virtually no rain for 2 months has caused some chaos. Last weekend the heavens opened, but that may have lulled us all in to a false sense of security. We can't stress enough the importance of watering to avoid garden failures and disappointment. We have been implementing a lot of watering systems and further water saving solutions in case of a hosepipe ban. Because we build the gardens that we design we can fit a simple irrigation system retrospectively. If you have had a garden designed and constructed by us then we will already have a system plan on file for you. If you are about to or are considering having your garden constructed by us then effective watering solutions can be implemented as part of your garden plan.
