Apart from the boundaries below, another significant boundary was our plans. Before we moved in to the house, we had planned to renovate and extend the house. We knew the building work would start in the autumn of 2012. We wanted to get the back garden off to a good start before the building work and knew we would not work on the garden until the spring of 2013, when we would review the back garden design and design the rest of the garden.

I also moved into the analysis phase here a little by looking at possible solutions to the limiting factors we identified.
