From what neighbours have told me it was once a nice garden, when I moved in it was horrendous. My girlfriend had allowed the dog to use it as a toilet, it was over-grown with brambles and weeds. I have stripped it all back, removed the smell and now I have a relative blank canvas to create what I want.
For your consideration, the bottom of the garden covered with blue tarp (picture to follow soon) is designated as a dog 'run' and will be paved with a gate to the right and the kennel to the left. I am thinking of a gravel path down to the run on the right also. The budget is small, id love decking, I cant afford it. I do want a seating area, a decent sized lawn. I have already planted two apple trees in front of where the fence for the run will go.
