just lacking a little height for me.
I think you could do with maybe one or two specimen trees in the borders.

Looks beautifully lush and healthy, I think the height will come over time Ken. It's doing incredibly well for such a newly planted garden.

Your garden is looking great Fieldfest, pretty new but lovely and lush, I just wish my front garden was 1/4 as good as yours, and then i would be happy icon_thumleft

WOW!!! What an amazing video! Damn you clever people and your fancy films!! :mrgreen:

I'm not going to bother going to ventnor botanic gardens next time I'm out your way, I'll just book a visit to your place instead!! :D

Your front garden has come on leaps and bounds! Do you get people chatting to you about it when they pass?
The raised bed at the back looks great too! Good work! icon_salut

Every credit to you Dave, your planting looks amazing and incredibly natural considering it's such a new garden.

Love the choice of soundtrack too ;)

hello 2014

this weekend I have mostly been sorting the grass out, fixed the lawnmower, scarified and spiked the lawn, most seeds already sown.

on the 'to do' list:
Am having 3 tonnes of rubble delivered today for what is currently known as my 'patio area' though this could change to the 'kids swing area' if my wife gets her way...
