    Sad to say it won't help asking other people's opinions as we all have different views on what we like in a garden. 
    I have artificial grass which we laid ourselves but it involves a lot of hard work and certainly wasn't cheap but it's what I wanted in a small area and increasing age.
    Your design wouldn't be for me as i love clematis and flowers.
    Is your decking area large enough for table and chairs or an outdoor sofa set?

    @Dovefromabove you are right laying the astro turf properly is very tricky it needs stretching and pinning to get it right. Actually just like laying a carpet which I'd say (as a specialist in interior modifications of houses) is a skilled job and not for diyers 🤣.

    Well yes... I didn’t explain that very well did I ? 😂 
    The final laying is a bit like laying a carpet ... but what I meant was, you can take up an old carpet and put a new one down, maybe with new underlay; but you can’t kill off a lawn and then lay artificial turf on the soil without a great deal of preparation work.
