It’s nearly a year since we moved into our house, our very own house
Our family home!
With Bump’s imminent arrival we have some work we would like to do to his room however first we wanted to sort out the garden
Our garden is a fantastic size & I have quite a few things I want to do with it
The biggest issue we were having was the fact that the bottom of the garden never seems to get any sunshine, there’s a strip that just didn’t see the sun no matter the time of day
Drainage isn’t great at the bottom of the garden, add that to the fact it didn’t get the sun & it was just constantly boggy
The grass was always wet
We decided that the best plan would be to dig out a border, add some stones & pots.
This would mean that we wouldn’t have to mow the soggy grass but also it would stop the fence from rotting
So one weekend, with my supervision, Mr M dug the border. We then put down a weed sheet & bags of blue slate
We got some nice pots & put them in place
I love colour & added some colour plastic bunting & fairy lights
I think it looks great & much better than it did before
Now we just need to look into getting plants for the pots
I would like to get a blackboard of some kind for the boys to draw on & I would love some Rattan furniture but that can wait for the moment
