Im planning a complete makeover for my garden this year. Heres how my garden looked in 2007 when we moved into the house..
And how it looks now after I put my own stamp on it..
But ive decided to make some big changes. With our young son growing up, Im finally ready to reduce the size of the lawn and increase the planting area. This is my plan, which includes a reshaped lawn, new path along the hedge, wildlife pond and much more planting. Im going to try and create a partly formal area to the left of the lawn by adding box balls/pyramids in each corner and along the new path, but with a cottage garden kind of look as well...
Plenty of back breaking work ahead, as soon as the weather warms up a little. Im on hard clay so I intend to dig out the whole garden, remove some clay, then put the topsoil back in with the addition of new soil.
