When we first moved in, I built some garden beds with sleepers lying at the back of the garden. I also made the rather stupid decision to have one of the beds jutting out into the yard. That dramatically reduced the usable space we had, though it did give us a good amount of growing beds for veggies.
With the sale of my rumble.net domain, we took the plunge on professionals to sort it out. Properly built garden beds. A little patch of grass. Flat and level paving. It's brilliant and feels like a whole new garden. Looking forward to Summer when we can enjoy it. This weekend: planting out!
