The Google view above is two years old and shows the grounds when we finished the construction. The grounds are now full of trees and plants – over 1000 local tree and plants were planted once construction was completed. Richard, our gardener, has done a great job. He tends to the garden with the care and attention that you would normally give to a young child.
