We live on a property with really sucky drainage and the tenants before us didnt do very much in the garden. Last year I gave it a huge over haul that I had to repeat again this year... Im not a gardening fan lol.


there used to be weeds in there as tall at the deck! I think the roses (at the end) and dieing though, they dont seem to like the clay very much  Undecided (ignore the mess in the background, can only get SO to do one job at a time and the next job I need him to do is repaint the kitchen I damaged today  Tongue )


Only about half way with this one, hoping to concrete over it and make into more parking space - thats my cat Spunky by the way and the buckets are what the veges in the other garden used to be in  Cheesy

It's surely a lot to do still but with a bit...ekh...a bit more....ok, a hell more time you will make a beautiful place! it seems like the place has a great potencial. Live plants make it look already much better. well, good luck with your project "My dreamt Garden"! Let the patience be with you! Wink

Yea Ive got heaps to do.
Going to get something to line the garden edges (Im not sure what yet, as its a rental Im not too keen on spending hundreds) the deck has to be restained and extended (other half wants to put a bbq pit down the end where the roses are- arguing over concrete or wood  Roll Eyes he seems to forget wood burns  Roll Eyes )
and Im thinking of putting daphne bushes on either side of the path (Hes smoker, Im not too fond of the smell and hes not too fond of my incese addiction  Wink  Cheesy  Tongue )
Ill get there slowly, mostly we have to wait so long cos everything has to get approval Roll Eyes (and my SO moves at snails pace hence why I did the garden)
any other suggestions?
The grounds quite clayey (about 15cm down?) so Ive been having a few issues with plants (the lettuces and brocoli went to seed without any crop  Angry )
