We moved here 11 years 8 months ago, just before my son was born. We worked hard on the house, neglected the garden for the first few years. We liked the garden as it was, it suited our family and we called it 'the park' for many years.
The first garden project was to get rid of the conifers. Then start on the tiny patio, make it huge and design it so we could sit and eat out in the evening sun.
I'm going to post the story bit by bit so I don't loose it all !
