It's been a busy couple of years in the garden. From volunteering weekly with a gardening group, to keeping up with growing my own veg and plants from seed, I've also been designing my first garden, a low maintenance garden... that started with a grassy / weedy area that looked sad and was in need of some TLC (tender loving care).
I've always had some interest in garden design and have done a short design course etc. Recently I took on my first project, starting with drawing out ideas and doing a bit of research on plants, etc. Its been fun and hard work as I've been involved in the digging etc (my back has not liked this).
Here's a little sneak preview of one of the areas that is almost finished, with a before, during and after shot. More on the garden design project (and its progress) at a later date.
