Starting Point

Postby johnd83 » Sun Sep 28, 2014 12:51 pm

Good afternoon all,

As some know I have recent moved house and that is the reason why I have not been around for the past 5 weeks or so ago. All back up and running now with new broadband ect. The new house has a bigger garden which is going to be good for the kids and my wildlife photography I hope. So far I have been doing as much as I can in the garden between working and family commitments both my wife and I have been looking to the bigger picture to what the garden can be with hard work and care. It was massively overgrown which we have piled up and in the process for clearing, but already starting to see some improvements. Below is a photograph of the garden as it stands with plenty of work to go.

:tree: Nice to have the surrounding trees.

It's a pity the garden was so overgrown - it's often good to wait a year to see what comes up as the seasons pass but you will probably still see things emerging that were planted years ago :flower:

Great to have a garden to work on and plan - exciting and rewarding times ahead :tampoline: :spring: johnd :bunny:

You've certainly got yourself good project there john. :) I love the fence with all the different panels, I would recommend a good creeper of some sort to hide it. It's always difficult to know where to start until you've decided what it is you want from the garden but we look forward to hearing what you've decided to do.

Great potential as you say, Johnd. All-consuming, very rewarding project.
See you've got a feeding tube up already - priorities !!! :clap:

Which direction are we looking at ? 'Cos if you decide on climbers on the fence that will possibly have to be taken into account.

All the fences will need replacing. Needs levelling and New turf.

I love all that old fencing too - it's got character :D

Is that a shed on the left hand side or more fencing or a compost heap? :tree:
