Chris's garden makeover

Post by ChrisG »

Spreckly mentioned that I used to post photos of my garden renovations. I had forgotten, so I will start again.

Today I cleared a particular corner. There was a low wall (falling down) surrounding a holly bush or two. The path has not been cleared for many years - if ever - and was covered in matted roots, dead leaves and random rubbish that people choose to lob over my garden wall {mr.angry}

It is now cleared and the low wall rebuilt. The bed is much bigger than needed for the holly, so I think I might plant some hostas, as they are not fussy about there being less light than other areas.

Right, now to rediscover how to post photos ;)

This is how I left it yesterday:

Removed the rubbish:

Rebuilt the wall:

It is a 'dry brick' wall ;)

And cleared the matted roots from the path

My aches from yesterday now have aches of their own :b(

Hard work in warm weather! Looking forward to seeing the evolving transformation of a lovely Hosta bed. So many different ones.

We (well, OH mostly) finished the fence around the vegetable plot. It even has a gateway with an arbour sort of affair over the top.

Impressive stuff, Chris. I'm showing the photos to OH......

I enjoy the hard work end of gardening more than the weeding and planting because you get the sense of achievement that you must have.
