The Garden in May

BLOG POST number two

One of the main reasons we purchased this property was the large garden. The previous owners obviously loved the garden so invested a lot of money and time in it. Both David and I are keen gardeners and we are delighted daily with all the lovely plants and flowers that are popping up. We have plans of our own for it over the next couple of years. We want to replace the patio and steps down to the lawn and have some  gorgeous new walling put in. We have a lot of work to do!

I want to create an outdoor living space too with a wooden painted garden seat with roof to go at one end of the raised patio area and to mix in a garden table and chairs with lots of cushions and patio planting. This project will start in early spring next year so I have a few months to gather my style and source some wonderful things to fill this new space.

We have replaced the fencing to one side of the garden and removed shabby five foot panels that didn’t give us any privacy. We are amazed at the difference it has made to us. The other side of the garden has an established hedge so apart from needing a trim every now and then we are pleased that it gives us privacy on the other side too!
