Three years ago we bought our nest and refurbished the house. The garden was forgotten or unaccounted for. It’s a pretty bleak sight. Builder’s rubble abandoned in the corner, an old fireplace, gate, manky lawn ruined by the trampoline (now removed as boys’ used it as a wrestling rink). There’s no patio, the fence is half- dead and it’s just not very nice.
However it has potential! It’s south facing and has a quirky charm but definitely the potential for good times. The builders are coming next week to lay a new patio. The first phase of the transformation. I’ll document each stage – the planting will be the most exciting. As my husband and I are clearly not green fingered low maintenance is the goal!
Right I’m off to do some more clearing. We’ve three years of junk to move!
