A compromise I thnk ..using a landscape gardener for the heavy stuff, own design and work at it over the seasons.
Over ten years my garden has eveolved as it has grown with me and family needs...from more veg and lawn with small pond to more pond/water feature, terracing for sitting out, extended lawn and now as much vertical planting as the three fences will hold, includung raspberries which 'creep' about!
Love it...researching plants, digging in the wet, visiting open gardens, lifting flagstones ...GW....talking to you all... sigh... what is this life if ...oops..got carried away there
abreak in the clouds...time for fresh air.
