|Rose Garden 2010|
|2011 - still very much a work in progress!!!|
Now my garden is in no way finished but sometimes it is good to reflect on all you have done.
The older parts of our garden are approximately 5 years old, other parts only a few years old.
When we built our house there was next to nothing surrounding it. We started by planting hedges and trees to get the basic structure of the garden established.
I drew a plan for our garden one bored day whilst we were living in the UK for a short while. The house was not built at this stage but the plans were drawn and I knew the placement of the house in the yard.
Surprisingly the plan has not changed!
What has changed are the plants used. It has been a case of a little trial and error as I am not used to the soil and climate here. My principal is lots of mass plantings, not lots of variety, hedges for structure, lots of lawn and trees.
I am excited to see what the garden looks like in another 5 years!
