Finally, My New Back Garden!!

Well at long last some piccies of the newly landscaped garden. I've shown some pictures of before but obviously it wasnt in that state. We had a large decking the length of the garden and it banked at the bottom so had it all built up, feature steps that overlook the pond, a new deck area, bigger patio and alot more grass. We've still got to get a new Patio Set but for now the trampoline is on the patio till it can go back on the grass in a few week.
Heres a taster though the photo's dont really do it justice!

I've kept them small so just click on any picture for a larger view.

BEFORE






AFTER









I've planted everything myself and am having to spend 2 hours a day watering the grass but worth every minute and today the weather is hot and sunny here!
Off to McDonalds with the kids, catch up with you tonight
