Progress in the Garden!

What a manic weekend!! I knew i would pay for taking a day off by spending it in the garden on saturday; one of my caseloading ladies went into labour which i had to attend in the early hours of sunday morning! 12 hours working on very little sleep after a heavy day in the garden - BIG mistake!! Nevermind, hindsight is a wonderful thing!

But on a more positive note, the garden has had a complete overhall!! and project chicken is one step closer to being complete!! Take a look,

The before shot
I needed to get 3 slabs alongside eachother to be able to put the chicken run in properly. That obviously wasn't going to happen..... so i decided to completely change it all! I was going off the border at the back anyway.

And it was gone!
I planted the tulip bulbs in the border by the door. I don't know if they transport very well but they needed to be moved so we'll see!

The viola and the other thing with purple flowers under the rose bush; yes the stones came up!
The new, smaller, SOO much better flower border, where the chicken run was going to be. Thats going to be so pretty when the clematis' grow and the rose in the middle does too.
And there there chicken coop will be!

Overall garden shot. Alot of it is mud at the moment but I wil start re-grassing it shortly!

And this is Scott's handywork! I didn't get a before shot... We can now see through to the neighbours garden but we have some old bamboo fencing stuff which we will put up!

But as you can see, he did A LOT of chopping!
Theres still loads that needs to be done but it's a start! The to-do list includes...
  • Patch up the grass
  • Put the bamboo up
  • Plant some seeds and get some veg on the go for the other border
  • Paint the shed - that seriously needs doing!!
  • Stain the chicken coop and put it up
  • Ideally the damson tree needs a serious pruning too but i don't know that i want to take that on, may ask the landlord of she'll get someone proper in to do it!
