Help! How can we improve our patio on a budget?
Our patio is grey, uneven, sprouting weeds, has a low wall (don't know why!) that has fallen down and a brick raised bed to the left . See photo attached.
We are not green fingered or particularly handy (we inherited the house, so didn't choose the garden)..
We would welcome advice on how to improve it please!
We can't just remove the low wall (originally 3 bricks high) as it is laid on breeze blocks that are not flush with the level of the slabs.
There is an area that is pebbled rather than paved which is unintentionally growing various plant life. As well as weeds coming up between the slabs.
I'd love to deck over the whole thing but suspect it's beyond our budget.
We're thinking it would be best to go with it and have it in keeping with our Victorian house.
Could I grow creeping Phlox or similar in the crevices of the wall if we rebuild it?
Could I plant small creeping plants in gaps between slabs? Could we pave over the existing?
We mainly use the patio for sitting out on and whilst we'd like it to look attractive, we'd like it fairly low maintenance.
Budget wise, a few hundred pounds max.
Any advice would be gratefully recieved! Many thanks in advance!
