  • Coldframe/Greenhouse/Potting Shed – we’re currently using the conservatory, it’s far from ideal!
  • Vertical Succulent Garden – I’ve had a pallet set aside for this about 3 years now!!!

  • Chickens – ideas to keep the flock hentertained
  • Large trellis – create a feature with climbers to cover a horrible wooden fence.
  • Green/Sedum Roof for summerhouse & shed
