Sam - we are the same moved into a little village where the avg age is prob 65-70!!!! I'm 31 and trying to. Improve the garden. The back was heavily landscaped with just a lawn abs some pots on the wall sour rounding this then a dog kennel and a hot tub!!!! Hot tub in an excouncil village house!!!! The front had a silly statue lawns and standard plants in pots lining the drive. All looked pretentious.
We are making beds and trying to soften. I made boarders in the small back garden and really want the cottage look. Going to widen the boarders from 1 ft to poss 2 this year. My other half in not enamoured as its cutting down the lawn!!!! But I will wait till he is out!!!
We still have a smaller dog run but swapped the ugly dog run concrete for a raised veg bed. I have photos on here if you want to take a look. It's a thread called photos of my garden (I think!!!) it's just 1 year on and not much but I'm working on it when money and time permits!!
