the garden

creating our own haven

having a garden was very important to us

we love the outdoors

and getting to chill in our own garden

growing flowers

having bbqs

reading a book in the sunshine

we also wanted a south facing one

so that we got sunshine all through the day

and boy did we get it

it's not as big as or old house

but i recon thats not a bad thing

this one is more compact

and easier to handle

as gardens can quickly become a hassle

and get overgrown

we have big plans

and want to use as much reclaimed materials as possible

doing lots of d.i.y.s and crafting

to pinterest we go

we want it to be quite minimal

not too overgrown or wild

something manageable and aesthetic

a nice little haven to relax in

 

we were looking to have some raised beds

to frown flowers and veg

also a row of bamboo in front of the fence

to act as a barrier and decor piece

we like very much the idea of a camomile lawn

also green and purple being key colours

layout

we have six sections to the outside

the garden

the patio

the greenhouse

the shed

the drive

& the front lawn

i found it easier to separate them

as we could tackle one section at a time

this reduced the initial work load and cost

the greenhouse

to begin we revamped the greenhouse

this was so we could get to planting veg in time

the structure was in great condition

all the glass was intact and it wasn't wobbly or rusted

we began by clearing out the junk that inevitably got piled up and did some weeding

we managed to save a fern that self sowed itself

and look forward to planting it in the garden

once the space was cleared we churned up the soil which was super dry

then added some
