Help! How can we use this yard?

Posted: 16/01/2015 at 23:10

It depends a lot on your budget. I suppose paving the end nearest the house would probably be too expensive. Could you deck it? I saw a family garden by a garden designer on TV recently that had fake grass and it actually looked quite nice. Would be fine to play on too, a child was on it playing with a toy train.

Trellis along the top of the fence with clematis and honeysuckle would give more privacy and be less bulky than planting shrubs.

Mother Theresa, that was my favourite garden so far, fabulous, just what I like - lawns, herbaceous borders, trees and shrubs. The one I liked least won, but no lawn. Thank you for the link.

Frustrated! Changed into gardening outfit, took Christmas tree to bonfire and settled down to weeding and planting the last bag of forgotten tulips and a few violas. Just got stuck in when it poured. Came indoors, hair was sodden, and rain then stopped, but it's all wet and squelchy out there.

I've seen the Afgan girl before, but she is a stunning subject for the photographer.

Lily, how do you post a moving picture? He's cute.

Strawberry is lovely, I had Jersey cows, but photos were before I had a digital camera.

Each year there is usually a "Garden Gallery", where people post photos of their gardens. You can find it by using the search facility at the top of the screen. This is last year's.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/garden-gallery-2014/236027.html

Morning all.

Interesting about cows, I used to have Jersey house cows, I milked by hand.

Hope to do some gardening today if it doesn't rain. Going to dinner with son and DIL tonight, he lives in local town.

Matty had her op and is home, but I expect she tell you, herself, when she feels up to it. Hope she doesn't mind my telling you.

Yvie, I don't like the Wickes man either. But I like Carol Klein so thanks for rescuing her. Can one put bad weather in room 101?

I looked on Metéo France, the main weather site. Which one did you see snow on?

DD, you've worked harder than me recently because I haven't done anything much for ages.
