Hope the weather is not bringing you down. What a horrible rainy day!
To cheer you up, I thought I’ll share with you some pictures of our garden.
As you know it’s still very much a work in progress, but it seems we are getting there slowly.
We are big fans of recycling and saving money therefore most of the materials we’ve been using are reclaimed.
We needed lots of bricks to build two raised beds as well as a patio at the back of the garden.
Initially, we used a social network called Streetlife to ask people for unwanted bricks and wood. We followed that with a note through neighbours’ doors.
We got an amazing response, which we are very grateful for! Definitely worth a try if you are looking for reclaimed building materials.
S and his dad have done an excellent job, don’t you think? We’ve started planting, so hopefully, with time, our garden will look like a typical English cottage garden.
Apart from creating a new green fence, we also sorted out a pathway leading to the garden. Very happy with the results!
Let me know what you think. Any advice about plants and creating a cottage garden is always welcome.
As some of you might know, I’ve been nominated for the Amara Interior Blog Awards 2015. It would be great if you could support me, so I can at least make a shortlist. Please vote for secretgardenhome. Thanks a million!
Have a good week!
