Getting there, the beds are marked out and gravel laid
This was taken this year late spring which shows how much the garden has filled in. Privacy was a big issue as with most new estates and we overcame this by putting trellis to our existing wall and fence and planted honeysuckle, pyracantha, roses, ivy, jasmine. We also added two pergolas over which we have grown wisteria, roses and clematis.
We also added a small water feature the birds love this.
Here is my cat enjoying the last of the evening sunshine sitting underneath the Acer.
The garden is very scented which the bees love and we have had blackbirds nesting in the Ivy two years running. The garden is crammed full with plants, no weeds can get a look in. We have a visiting hedgehog who helps with the snail and slug population. This year we removed our shed and have installed a greenhouse so I will be growing more for next year.
Hope you enjoyed my pics
