All the preparation and planning for the Slate Garden began before Christmas, but all the hard work began on the actual garden itself in February. We worked together with Gwynedd Council’s Residential and Day Services to create our fantastic new garden - and here are some pictures of the proses.

The pictures on this blog will allow you to see the whole process, from beginning to end.

We love our new Slate Garden, and we hope that you will get the chane to come to Llanberis to enjoy the garden too!
