Our living room patio doors look out onto this pile of mud and I'd like to try and transform it into something beautiful to look out onto!
The fence panels need replacing and the patio to the right needs making slightly bigger to fit a table and chairs on. I was thinking maybe widen it to where the holly is planted?
It is a south west facing border so does get good sun. The soil is pretty dry so I will be adding topsoil and well rotted manure once I know what Im doing with it.
Because of the slope, I think the bed needs to be 'stepped' to create 2 flat beds so for this to happen I think the wall needs to be brought forward.
I have to be able to reach two of the concrete posts as my washing lines hook onto them.
In terms of planting style, I like cottage garden type with full borders and I love all colours.
Any ideas or advice? It's looking like quite a mammoth task!
