Extreme beginner needs inspiration please!
I am a complete beginner to gardening, but we bought our first house before Christmas and my little boy and I are looking to tidy it up during the Easter holidays.
Im looking for inspiration as to what to do to the garden! In the family there is myself, my husband, and our 5 year old and 1 year old and family dog. Our plan is to freshen up the colour on the garage, cut back all of the ivy along the wall, plant some easy to care for flowers in the beds already there, and we are going to attempt a home made water feature using pots. I really dislike all of the concrete though! I'm on a budget and it needs to be something I can try and do myself. I considered decking as you walk out onto the patio but we have a sewer access lid thing (can't think of the name!) and I'm not allowed to cover it.
Ive attached a photo for reference, and would love any ideas and inspiration please!
Thank you ☺️
