As you can see, the before pic was pretty dire! Everything was so overgrown and neglected. The shed was about to collapse and yes! that is a Christmas tree in the foreground. Oh the shame!!!
So, I found some garden tidy guys and set them to work. I think it's fair to say that the finished results were a little shocking! When I said a good prune they took me literally and hacked back almost to the ground!
However, thankfully plants grow again so everything has recovered now.
Next it was time to replace the old shed. I seriously had my doubts that it would survive another winter! It must have been about 20 years old and was totally rotting away.
Bye bye old shed!
Hello nice new shed! Very orange huh? Have no fear....a coat or two of paint soon sorted the orange out ;-) (more about painting garden stuff in another post)
And then the lights were sorted and working again!
This year I'm sorting out the big things like shed, furniture, lighting etc. Next year I'll concentrate on the planting. Well that's the pan!
Considering how crappy the garden looked in April I'm pretty pleased so far! Now I just need a nice sunny day to finish painting the furniture and add some pretties to the shed.
So that's one update done! I think a ta-dah post should be next on the posting list ;-)
Til next time...
