Finally coming to the end of soil sifting, slab laying and general hard labour! The last bit of the garden that needed sorting out in terms of landscaping was the bit under our kitchen window. Originaly a mess of old gravel, a few random plants, old pots and general rubbish.
How to make sense of this? Well...the soil sifting took a couple of weekends, but thanks to some serious gravel washing and relaying of slabs (more recycled ones), a little bit of help from Mr F - plus an edging from bricks donated by a friend of mothers the area is slowly transformed into something better.
It's the shadiest part of the garden though, so finding plants that will thrive here is going to be quite a challenge but looking forward to a voyage of discovery!
