It took 12 months after the storm for the insurance company to get around to clearing the fallen tree, removing several dangerous trees and erecting a new fence. It was lucky for us that the tree did damage the old fence as that was the only damage that could actually be fixed by the insurance. That and the power cables that had blacked out the whole district for four days!!
By the following summer - two years after the storm, the garden had taken shape and we were amazed at how quickly everything had grown.
A very satisfying start.
