Here it is in all its unfinished, messy glory. The before shots.
This is the area just outside the back door where our recycling buckets are kept. I plan to clean and repair the brickwork, render it and paint it. I will also get some hanging baskets to go on the porch.
The rosemary and mint will be moved to another bed (off to the left of the coal bunker and not in shot. Where the rosemary was I plan to make a tiny pond. On the boundary with the other neighbour I plan to plant bamboo.
What you can just about make out under all that greenery is that there is a coal bunker there. This is going to be dismantled to make room for table and chairs. The fence will be repainted and lighting will go in.
This is the garden proper. As you can see, this also needs a lot of work. My plans for this are all just pipe dreams for now, a secret garden, chickens, beautiful wild flowers, a pizza oven, a series of small ponds, fruit cage, green house and poly tunnel are all on my list of loves.
