This is how it looks now
This is what the tree seat area looked like at first with the old fence around it on both sides.
This is it now and I would say we are finished. We have lived here for 7 years and everything we have done to the garden has happened a bit at a time. We have saved up and done each bit when we could. The fences on the right got replaced a few years ago when the original ones blew down in the wind, decking has been done in different areas over the years and is maintained by my husband, when he sees the stain on offer he buys it and puts it away for when it is needed. Like I said yesterday pots have accumulated over time.
We do not know a lot about gardening but fortunately my husband is good at woodwork and if I have an idea for what would look nice he can usually make something and we try to do it on a budget (remember the tree seat materials were free)
We will spend a lot of time in the garden over the coming months so I think it is worth the time and money.
