Alot of people showing pics of their gardens so I thought why not.
Only 12yards x 10yards. Hope you like.
This is really lovely. Goes to show what someone can do with smaller amounts of space. Get a lot in the space but make it all look beautiful.
Very cool Chris.
what you peeps on micro lots do.. with the limited space is mind boggling ...
without a doubt ... there is no way for me to say.. 'i still see a lot of grass' ...
the little raised dais for the lawn chairs cracks me up ...
i have a particular hatred for shearing privet/boxwood.. but yours is sublime.. as i fully understand the labor of love that shearing must be [though i personally have other words for the process.. lol]
thx for the pix
Looking good! You've made a small space look very interesting and full without looking cluttered at all.
Immaculate garden, great atention to detail. I like the touch of two chairs to sit and enjoy your garden
Why Not is right...Well done!
I like it alot, very well done.
Great job... very nice!
You've packed a lot of interest into that space. Nicely done.
Many thanks for all the kind comments. The raised seating area was the wife's idea, personally I would have had more plants there myself. Trouble is when I sit there I see things that need doing. Can't win !!!
Looks great. I like the flowing design.
I'd love to know more about the various materials you've used for edging, e.g., the handsome stuff around the 'chair dais', but the others too.
You have the size property I SHOULD have at my age. It's wonderful.
Super sweet! How do you cut the grass btw? One of those hand shears on a stick?
If I had to work with the space you have, I'd go the rock garden route. Sub-alpine. Big rocks and small conifers. Echeveria and some of the smaller Sedums. Maybe a dwarf Armeria.
You've done a real good job so far. Very neat and precise.
That's a luxury I don't have with a very large garden. You have time to do other things!
Lots of questions.
Edging around seating area are railway sleepers, what we used to use to lay our railway tracks on, before concrete ones.
The grass I cut with a small push cylinder mower,12" width. And yes, it is fiddly to do but worth the effort.
I like to use foliage more than flower,so plants like farfugium, Haquetia "Thor", add all round interest.
Conifers though still reign supreme though.
