Advice for a small garden on a small budget!
Brand new to the forum but hoped you could help. I've tried to attach an image of my small garden. We have recently moved into the flat and our garden goes as far as the brown bin in the middle. It's not large but it would still be lovely to do a little something with it.
The thing we would like most is somewhere to sit in it. The sun arrives towards the rear of our garden at around 12 and is around until 5-6pm so hopefully later still in the summer.
Ideally we'd like to tidy up the front of it and put in some flower beds which we can manage. At the rear we'd like some paving or decking and a nice covered area to sit however I think it will be cost prohibitive for us this year. We could wait until next year and do all this, but I wondered what everyone thought about this idea...
Could we just buy and assemble this? This would in effect give us some decking (albeit just inside the structure) plus a covered area. The sun sets to the left of the image so I thought the top right of the garden would be the best place so that it provides some cover but will still get a nice bit of sun as the sun sets? http://greenhousesandgardening.co.uk/canterbury-gazebo-160-p.asp?gclid=COHktK7Q0LwCFfPItAodsh8Alw
Do you think this would be a sensible idea? And maybe we can build up the garden some more next year? Would this look too big in my garden? Haven't measured it but seems around 4m in width by 9/10m in length?
Appreciate the input and open to any other ideas!
