The best set of photos on your blog by a mile! Everything looks really good. Especially like the narrow bamboo corridor.

Agree with Kris, some really nice photographic work. Not sure I'm keen on the 3D thing, it does look 3D but hurts your eyes

Thanks for sharing pics. I used to live in Leeds (Stratford st) and have seen a few houses like yours, but not a garden! I love your pathway it reminds me of a little path that led to my grandma's cottage. Lovely garden.

The one in the photo. The path on the right side of your garden.

mark fillan plants for the scheffleras

kris do you mean the little brown wooden walkway?
you're confusing me since I don't have any bamboo constructed path nor a line of bamboo i'd call a bamboo corridor.

the washing line had to go, the garden had no balance in height at all.

Your a lucky man oh what I would do to loose the washing line.

I think Kris means that bit by your gate, your path is lined both sides by bamboo, or looks so in the pic.

Allowing for that washing line has probably made all the difference to your garden, Ken.

Twenty-eight years ago I had to design my garden around Sand's three washing lines and I have to say I was very pleased with the result. Over the years they have been wittled down to one and some redesigning around this lone piece of cord has made the garden look even better (to accomodate even more exotics, of course).

Don't think the result would have been as good if I insisted the line had to go, I was glad to be made to tow the line :lol:
