Following on from my last piece describing the DSWA Pinnacle award and One World Garden, for which I received my first Pinnacle award, I will this time describe the work at Brackenrigg in Cumbria for which I received a second Pinnacle Award. This project consisted of the construction of extensive boundary walls and garden features.
