Garden Gallery 2013

Posted: 04/06/2013 at 17:19

My front garden is now starting to take shape still got a few plants to put in like my centre piece when i decide what but most of the hard work's been done. The garden was all red chips when i moved in so decided to make a real garden instead of just chips here's the before and after photo's as i live in a mid terrace house the bins are at the front so i came up with this to hide them from the pavement & road.

Before just after lifting the red chips.

 Now all young plant's 90 percent i grew from seed the rest very young plugs i bought.

 Here's a photo from the pavement white planter built from a used pallet & painted.
