Garden makeover....


Hello! Happy Bank Holiday weekend :) 

Just wanted to share some photos of our garden makeover, which has kept us busy over the pass few months, now nearly complete :)

We felt it was time to clear out all the over sized shrubs and start garden all over again, with a few changes along the way...So love gardening & seeing beautiful flowers, but sadly it's been deleted over the last few years with my Dad very ill & then passing away.

Anyway here goes..sorry picture heavy! 

Before...June 16


Aug 16..Conifer hedge at bottom of garden coming out.  Over grown shrubs,  perennials & bird bath lost in there . also after this removed old dead tree and more from behind railway fence, did ask permission from British railway first.


March 17 ..4ft fence going up, so much lighter & seems to extend garden...feels so much bigger :) and gained about 4/5 ft for walled garden..Yay! more plants :)


May 17..Nearly complete,! Bench around corner and grass to sort out next..Lot's of new young plants to take care of now and once they are bit more established will look super :)



Changed patio shape with existing slabs from around garden to make more room on left hand side for table & chairs...love the new sleeper edge, again opening up the garden to feel bigger. Used the bricks that was there from wall  to add height to bottom of the garden wall.


Now one big border from top pergola/decking area right down to meet patio area, filled with Roses and perennials :) on trellis, honey suckle, climbing Rose & Clematis. New path/edge, so plants can trail over edge, no more Lady Mantle killing grass edge....lol  Bench still needs to be painted grey.

Pergola/decking now much more open,  with out hedge & fence there. Wall has been extended to go all way across bottom of garden now and great idea of Hubby's to add a bit of left over sleeper to make a sit :)








Hope you likely!

Enjoy your weekend, hopefully the sun will come back out again.

Thanks for stopping by :)
