I spent last weekend creating a front garden, doing all the planting, following a whirlwind week of landscaping by the professionals – lots of rocks!
We wanted space to sit at the front of our house, as people tend to congregate and we have a great view of the park. It also somewhat makes up for the lost dream of a classic porch that was a small sacrifice in our choice of home.
It is only when you look at the photos you realise just how much has changed . . .
I think it should be amazing next Spring, and even more so by the Summer, when we will have planted the remaining black grass in front of the other grasses to create a contrasting border to the bright green Creeping Jenny that will fill the space around the tree (neither of which were available now, at the end of the season).
