New garden new start... Fingers crossed

This should be our new garden this time next month, 

It's small, but it's at least three times bigger than we have at the moment, and most importantly private. I think it has potential to be quite the haven!





 Seems silly to be so excited about something so ordinary, but it's the best either of us have had in a long time!

    Wonderful blank canvas, I'm sure you'll make it fabulously your own! Can't wait for a blow by blow photo account image

    Looks lovey Sweetpea, a lovely patio for all your pots and where you can both sit and enjoy your new garden. A shed too and a great area to make your own with either plants brought with you or new ones once you've sat and made new plans. Good luck sweetpea, fingers are crossed hope all goes well x

    Swing seat sadly isnt ours image very sad! The house was sold in June, then bought a month ago by a landlord with lots of properties, it's all cleared and finalised and now he's letting it. Quick turn around! He's done nothing to the place because it was in perfect nick when he bought it, canny really! I'll be very happy to live there and put my mark on that though. hoping to have some sweet peas up the fences, scented ones up the shed, or morning glory, not too sure yet, then small simple things in the borders as they're small and narrow, and i've learned my lesson this year by going for big and bold dahlias which are very very much taller than I thought they would be!

    Something I love is that the window by the sink looks straight out onto the garden.

    Will be keeping the pots we're so accustomed to using now for herbs on the patio area, a little nod to what got us into gardening in the first place image

    Top of the list to buy is a nice table and chair set before it gets too cold to sit outside with a cuppa.

    All the very best to you Sweet Pea. 

    If you're lucky you might pick up a bargain on the table/ chair front after the pretty rubbish summer.

    Good luck.

    we're hoping this little number goes into the sale at the end of september, £60 won't break the bank, but it'd be nice to get it a little cheaper, as with everything in life image

    SweetP, that set looks great! ...and that garden has real potential; a couple I know moved on Wednesday and the whole of their garden is covered in thick brambles! You have a fairly blank sheet on which to work and I'm sure you will make it look lovelyimage

    It's been well maintained, but not loved, hopefully we can give it a bit of TLC

    Well knock me down with a feather SweetPea - I was only asking about you yesterday and here you are image

    Sometimes a blank canvas is the best option as you can do what you want. We live in rented accommodation too (Housing Association) and when we moved in the garden was basically long dead grass and thistles. There's such a lot you can do there image
