Overgrown back garden

Posted: 17/02/2013 at 10:52

Hello,  I have to confess that the first thing I have always done with all my new gardens is to scrap the lawn, and concentrate on good plantings, with maybe  small paths, one to a tree that would add height, with little woodlanders planted beneath, and/or  a bench under or around it, where you could sit for picnics to view your wonderful plantings.  Lawns are such a lot of work, and often trouble, whereas reasonably small shrubs and perennials are a long-lasting joy, and in the main take care of themselves. Yes, the fence definately needs attention, and it is amazing what a lift it can bring to take time to carefully choose a colour which will make a great backing for what you wil plant, and lift your spirits.  Each to their own, of course, and if a lawn will bring you great pleasure, I wish you the very best. May your grass be greener!
