    I thought that I'd share a few pics of my garden with you all
    It's still a working process with planting schemes and stuff, still some gaps to fill with some perenials.

            Most excellent mowgley :dbgrtmb:

            Looks fantastic.

            As an aside, your house must have been designed by the same architect as mine. It appears to be almost identical in design, and the pic out the front looks just like my neighbourhood:)

              Looks lovely that mate! Your ricinus are bigger than mine, mine are nowhere near ready to plant out yet. The front looks ace too, the trachycarpus looks right at home. Neat too, just my cuppa char!

                  The edges are some scaffold planks I got for free.
                  There very handy because they protect the plants from the little un's footy!




                  If the walls are impossible to drill clueless1 then yes they have been

                                That's a really tasty, well thought and ordered garden. There's quite a few plants there that caught my eye and the whole garden has a nice relaxed air about it.......a garden to be proud of!!:thumbsup::snork::hapydancsmil:
