Our garden is a dreadful sight I'm ashamed to admit.
When this house was built it was used as the show house and the garden had a water feature, a couple of trees and some lovely bushes all placed to advantage, then someone moved in and it was barely looked at again other than to get the grass cut. When we moved in almost 2 years ago we didn't know there was a water feature because the weeds had grown over the protective sheeting that had been laid to discourage weeds and everything was so overgrown it was a complete mess.
Last year we tried to tidy it up and we succeeded a little bit, mostly by cutting everything back, cutting down a few of the trees because they were getting a little dangerous and by discovering the abandoned water feature (not sure how they worked it because there's no outside tap or water connection to be found anywhere) and other than a few planted pots and hanging baskets etc nothing else was done.
This year however, with our girls now being 2 and loving the outdoors, it is imperative we provide a safe and secure garden for them to play in and it's a little beyond me how on earth I'm going to manage it!
Must take pics and let you all see what I have to work with and fingers crossed my Alan Titchmarsh (aka my Mummy) will help me work miracles.
