The Gallery - My Backyard




This is part of the garden on our new house  Behind the pond there is a patio area in from of the french doors, then to the left there is another part of the garden, slightly bigger than this with the greenhouse at the end of it and another patio/BBQ area.  To get to the left hand bit of garden you can either go down the path that runs along the back of the house from the patio area or cut through a passageway between trees which means you can run round the garden.  In the other half of the garden there is also a large apple tree and there is a 'secret' path that runs from the garden all along the back of the garden behind the apple tree which has a canopy over the top from the over hanging hedges and branches of the trees.  It comes out on the 2nd patio area by the greenhouse.  This garden is perfect for playing hide and seek or a good game of chase.

I have always wanted a beautiful garden that wasn't just a rectangle patch of grass.  When we found this house and had our offer accepted we couldn't believe our luck with the garden.  The boys love it, especially their secret path and hideouts they have found. In its time, it has obviously been a very well loved and well established garden and in time we hope to be able to bring it back to some of its former glory, although this is a learning curve for us and neither of us know alot about gardening! We are up for the challenge though.

There's something really exciting about a new garden. Especially when it's not just a boring rectangle.

It looks like you got lots already there to work with so you can have a bit of fun and experiment.

Look forward to seeing how you get on.
