Eighteen months ago our garden looked like this:
It went through a lot of changes and looked a bit bleak for a while
but now it looks like this:
It has a kitchen garden
easy access to the pond, without getting too muddy
the herb bed got a makeover so it gets more sun
and we have a screen to hide the compost bins for honeysuckle and sweet briar roses to climb. This year the bed is half-hardy annuals for late summer colour, but next year I am trying to think of bee-friendly perennial plants, possibly heathers.
I am really chuffed!
