Our front garden was clearly made to be low-maintenance but we were desperate to create a ‘chocolate box’ country cottage look, especially as our back garden is mainly a kitchen garden.
We removed all the pebbles – most going to neighbours houses/gardens – it was quite amusing to find white car parking lines underneath from the days it was a pub.
Then in came the landscapers to dig it all up, put in flower beds around the borders and creating a lawn – Sandy has been desperate to get a lawnmower (boys and toys?!) so now he can!
We’ve got to wait 2-3 weeks for the grass to sort itself out before we can get in there and start planting, but in the meantime, we’ve been given some very clever-sounding garden planning software to try out/review – The Weatherstaff PlantingPlanner which I’m very excited about.
