I bought a Halls Silverline lean-to in spring 2012. The instructions were so bad that we could not make out if the drawings and photos were of the inside or outside. Halls were hopeless at responding to desperate emails and I still don't have the door handle!. My builder set it on paving slabs with some gravel inside as I wanted to plant a fan trained fruit tree, I made my own staging from pressure treated timber (£43 app. for 8' length with a shelf underneath) I have a small water butt at one end. I really recommend safety glass.

whats this plant?

Happy Marion, can we see some 'boring' surfaces that you have painted, I am sure that you know 'Charleston' and the work of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, have you painted firniture like they used to do?

Yup Cerinthe, like you Dove I can never remember the name. For about 30 years I could never remember the name 'Aubretia', it kept coming into my brain as 'Anchovy'. Then I made myself always think of some old Brit actor in 1930's Hollywood, called C. Aubrey Something and associated the name with the plant. Even now I have to think of his face to name that d...n plant.

Help needed to create a new garden

Is there anyone in your family who can do carpentry? My neighbour has just built his wife who has disabilities 3 or 4 small raised beds (like high coffee tables, with a soil depth of 25cm or so) so his wife can plant and weed stuff. Your daughter could grow salad veg or flowers in them. He used pressure treated timber so that it won't rot for a while (always use a face mask when cutting this stuff because of the chemicals it is impregnated with)
