What a difference a year makes

When our next door neighbour build an extension onto their property we were really dismayed to see how much it imposed on our garden.  After chatting to a few people on here we made a few changes




 Hopefully this time next year the clematis will have clothed the trellis.  We have plans to extend the trellis across to the conservatory to block out the building behind a little (neighbours bathroom).

    Wow!  what a difference image painting the shed a light colour really takes your eye away from the neighbour's extension and brings the focus into your garden.  That's a triumph! image

    Very nice, more than can be said for that sh***y extension, it looks so out of place with the surrounding brickwork.

    I think they spent too many hours watching 'Grand Designs'.
