Ugly dumping ground
I have become obsessed in wondering what to do with this part of the garden. It's at the side of our house, the house wall is west facing and the bin end is south facing. we have raised beds on the east facing side that were built by previous owners , it was originally a grassy slope.
I hate the block paving, it covers the whole patio area at the back of our house too. Underneath there is some sand, and heavy clay soil. It has saplings growing through it which I am constantly trying to pull up and perennial weeds. It is back breaking to maintain and the blocks are a horrid pink colour.
In front of the fence where the bins live is a concrete base for which I presume was for for a greenhouse or shed . In the corner by the composter are some slabs that were laid/ dumped on bare ground.
On the one hand it's a private space, we're not overlooked by anybody. On the other hand it feels imposing with the high fence one side and the house the other.
Its hard to imagine how it could look.
I have taken some bricks up to make a new bed by the house and broom grows very well there.
It will certainly have to be done in stage as we can't afford to do a quick makeover.
Any suggestions, advice would be extremely appreciated.
