I'm rather lucky, residing in a terraced cottage, built c1840, extremely long, 200 ft plus, but narrow, around 25 ft. Garden is level with first floor, so sitting room is upstairs, and can see garden all year round. When we moved here 1994, the so called garden was just a tatty lawn. Now landscaped it, with veg plot incl glasshouse, east end, with 9 water butts. shed central area has 5 butts, and floral area, with some veg is nearer the home.
Whenever it rains, the water from the roof of the house, now fills my large pond via pipework, any excess goes into the man made bog garden.
I use upside down planted wine bottles, (recycling) along the path and to make various higher levels within floral areas, from all the hanging baskets compost over the years, (which needed to go somewhere) and amazing the various ferns etc, which have just grown inside them.
Hope you enjoy these images as much as I do in the garden.
