Need advice on very small, boring garden!

A question you could ask yourself firstly is " What do I want to look at in 3 months time "

You can

Remove the decking and regenerate the soil which will take a few seasons

Put in a pond which will give you frogs and newts and water lillies and the small possibility of a visiting heron

? What have neighbours done to their gardens....does stuff grow in their soil

? Where does the wind blow from

? Is it a sunny or secluded area

You can hang bird feeders from the fence

?? What do you want to see in 3 months time
