Nice, very nice icon_thumleft , lovely place for a cooling drink drunken_smilie1

See you opted for brown after all, looks good, still think black would have looked better especially with your black rattan furniture, whatever though 100% nicer than before, so well done.

ended up going for the darkest brown I could find because i can alway paint them black at a later stage rather than trying to paint black fences brown :wink:

the contempory design is definitely what i was going for :D

Goodluck with that Phoenix canariensis_CIDP mate. Any plans for more planting? A eucalyptus pauciflora next to the shed or another trachycarpus perhaps. :)

Thankyou for the great comments!! :D :D 8)

I want another tachycarpus about a 6ft trunk one would be ideal.
I also want to get the plant and tree area filled with cobbles too.

basically not much more to do other than wait for some good weather and enjoy the garden 8)

Excellent James, the fences look much better now and your eye is drawn to the plants much more.

Keep up the good work!
