Help with my very narrow, long garden?

Posted: 18/07/2015 at 10:35
My daughter's garden is 2 1/2 metres wide x 10m. I did a zig zag path. She wanted small square pavers with grass between them and a small lawn so I bought her a little hover mower. It's sort of in 2 areas as there is a rose arch in the middle. First are with path and beds, second area with lawn and a bench with another rose arch.

Unfortunately I can't sent a photo as there is something the matter with this site at the moment and the oak tree photo icon has disappeared.

I've had to go to basic editor too. When the site goes wrong it's always at weekends.
Going home tomorrow, ferry, staying with son in France tomorrow night on the way. Just planning what to do today. May go to West Dean but it's a bit of a drive.

Glad you had a good day Wonky. Was there romance?

We had a good afternoon and evening. Went to Brighton, wandered about, had a drink. Saw the pier and the Lanes. Had a delicious Italian seafood linguini and wine then went to the theatre and saw an Agatha Christi play. We took the bus from Eastbourne there and back, double decker, I could see into people's gardens.

Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

You need to buy a male and a female deer, Boater. I wouldn't advise it though - they will eat your garden!

Pat, try clicking on your name on this page then go to "my settings" then "thread starting page" "default to last". That should always take you to the last post on any thread so you can write under it. I'm surprised that clicking on the green arrow on the right didn't work, always does for me. Did you click on the correct green arrow? I use a laptop.

How did you know Lesley? But it takes time and we are just off to Brighton. I haven't shown you the Beth Chatto ones yet.

Hello Marion.

Forgot to put any text in above! We went to Bressingham Gardens when we were in Suffolk last week. They were fabulous. The original "Dell" garden with big island beds, colourful, and the "Foggy Bottom" garden which had a lot of structure with conifers.
