Well I have just started a project with the grandfather, to clean up the garden in our new house. The previous owner had slabbing everywhere. Going for the low maintenance garden, which was more of the no maintenance garden, over grown with weeds.
Here is a few photos of our progress so far. Any comments and advice welcome.
The small sleepers and strip of bark was put in place to cover a 1 foot wide sill which edges the pavement. The supports for the fence also has two big dollops of concrete on top of it. The concrete dollops where stopping it draining properly, and we were getting puddles at the front. So this seemed an easy solution to hide it and improve the drainage.
I still have a fair bit more work to go. There is also a wheel barrow planter to go in that big gap. I plan on planting nasturtiums in and around it to drape over the small sleepers.
I have never gardened before so I am a total novice. But I am having loads of fun so far.
