Thanks for all the advice guys. i'm starting next week when my wife and kids go on holiday so hopefully have something to show soon. any more advice would be greatly appreciated.
obelix - what would you recommend as a supporting wall that will look good but be cheap. i have been told that breeze blocks would be best for support and then covered with wooden boards - kind of like what is already there but with the breeze blocks holding everything up and the wood to hide it.
the garden is really quite small. it's about 17 meters across the paved bit and about 10 to 12 meters to the back fence. its on the north side of the house so what would be a good selection of plants?
the paving is just laid on the soil so isn't a problem to take up. just put it down so the kids didn't track mud into the house. it was a short term measure while i sorted other bits out.
