Barrow area complete

Thanks be to Asda for having an offer on their decorative bark, three 70L bags for £10. It was perfect for the job and I only needed two bags so I have a bag in reserve for another project.

The next plan for this area will be in October" I'll plant some daffodil bulbs so when next spring comes round it will add some colour.

Practical day

Today has been a practical one, not only have I done a fair amount of weeding I have also started to do something with the corners of the garden that have been plagued with stinging nettles.

We have an old wheelbarrow in the garden that we have put some annuals in (can't remember what they are but I know I have two fuchsias that have started to grow back. I have done 90% of the work but I just need to get some decorative bark to finish off.

Bistro area completed

I have finally completed the front sections to the house, I know it's easier to shingle than slab but you can just pick up the weeds off of the shingle rather than pulling up half your cement.

As you can see with the before and after shots I had a lot of clearing to do.

Spring is in the air

Hello people,

Spring is in the air and i have risen from my hibernation and have restarted my epic quest to tame the garden.

I have given the grass its first cut of the season, the strange thing is it hasn't stopped growing all winter!

I have started to clear the second front half of the house ready for a herb garden

Ran out of weed prof membrane so thats on the list if things to get tomorrow along with 250kg of shingle, terracotta pots and herbs.

Stay tuned for more wonderful updates.
