My Garden Makeover : Before, During & After........

I thought I would share with you the transformation of my garden from a derelict site to, may I say it myself, a garden to be proud of. When we first moved in the garden was completely over grown with weeds & ivy, which we ripped out & put up the fence at the end.

My garden is the one thing that I am going to miss the most when I move. I designed it & choose the plants & have watched it mature over the last 4 years.

Cutting down the 250 ft Horse Chestnut tree Nov 2005




It took nearly 3 weeks to cut the tree down. I hate to see any tree being felled but it was rotten on the inside & was unsafe, plus there was no sun light at all. It opened up the garden & we have the sun nearly all day now.

Now for the landscaping Jul 2006

  1. It looks wonderful! I would be sad too. I wish my yard looked that put together. Maybe one day. :)
