Starting to look fantastic, Kris! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. :-)

I've got some raised beds coming soon, hoping to get a few exotic bits for them, but they'll be in shade/semi shade so I hope to get a nice Dicksonia for the darkest spot. Been lusting after one of they! icon_thumleft

Sleepers then drainage chanels then decking then fill the beds then plant. Hopefully by May/June time.

Cheers. It felt good working in the garden today (between going to the pub) got most of the sleepers in place now. Now adding gravel to the drainage channels then it'll be the decking next! :D
