landscaping my garden :) :)

Hmmmmmmm  Doesn't really matter which we like the most ....... it depends what you want and the options you have re space etc ............... I suppose that as you seem to be in Canada you may have a lot of space ..........  you say that you've finalised a few plans - but for what?  an outdoor kitchen or one of the other structural features the company advertises, or a complete 'yard makeover' or what?  How can we give our opinion if we have no idea what you're aiming for? 

Do you want us to look right through the company's website and tell us which we like the best?   I don't really see the point of that unless you're doing consumer research?

My first thought was that you were just advertising Infinity Gardens which is in Calgary.......... but what would be the point of that given that this is a mainly UK based forum?  Perhaps I'm just being sceptical

I'm confused about what you're asking

Pauline, once you've got your eye in ours needs re-doing 'cos we forgot to do it with anti-mould emulsion last time   Don't mind doing the middle- it's those danged edges  - but OH is soooooo good at doing those

New Year's Day 2016 Flower Count

Posted: 31/12/2015 at 09:59

Thought I'd start this thread to remind us that tomorrow we have to go out into the garden with our notebook and record all flowers in bloom on New Year's Day.


If your plans for this evening mean you're going to need it in order to function , remember to stock up on coffee and paracetamol today

The Undergardener is going to help me with some structural screening - maybe along the lines of a pergola - ish sort of thing - and then the new island bed will be constructed - I'll need lots and lots of plants

I get it trimmed every once in while   good for the growth as well!!

I thought you only had a balcony - didn't realise you had a garden and lawn as well.  Tell us more about your garden ... we like to see what other people are doing in their gardens ... maybe some photos?

Somehow New Year's Eve has crept up on me Pat - can't think how, it seems to occur most years

I shall have to pop down to the shops and get something nice for supper - we've used up all the Christmas leftovers except for the cheese.

Good morning all   G'day Pat  -  Happy New Year to you

Hope everyone with the sniffles and other lurgies are feeling better soon, and that all affected by the storms and flooding are ok ((hugs)).

Pauline, sit down and have another cuppa - that urge will pass

Garden shed for my LIttle balcony

I agree, check with the building engineers/structural surveyors for your building.  The weight of a large container of soil, plus the water it will hold, plus a person or two on your balcony sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

What's wrong with a few pots? 

Otherwise you're just going to have to rent some garden land nearby or save up to move to a place with a garden.
