    Rossall Beach...up the coast North of Blackpool, big garden, well to me anyway (approx  43ft x 63ft), but concrete paths leading nowhere, well, round 2 large raised beds with a lawn in the middle, then another bigger lawn nearer the house. Really enjoying mulling over what to do. BUT...looking at design comment on where to put the washing line (I'm a fan of AT and have his comment on washing line...he is male tho'...), any ideas? don't want a rotary me sad but I love to watch the washing blowing on a long line ha ha

    Agree with you re watching washing blowing on the line! I only notiiced what an eyesore washing lines can be when mine fell down about 5 years ago. I don't like the rotary ones either, so I bought a retractable one, only takes a minute or two to pull it out and fix it, voila - 15 metres of clothesline, which disappears after use.

    I have a rotary washing line, and love to see the washing blowing on it.  When it is dry I fold it down, put the cover on and tuck it into a corner till next time.  image

    Hi all - guess where I live image

    I'm a new member but already I've seen posts that are so much help to me.  Hubby bought me a greenhouse for my 50th a few years ago and though I've managed a few things I've lost a lot - seeds and plugs mainly - and don't feel I'm using it to its full potential.  I'm going to try sotongeoff's reply above.
