WELL, WE DID IT........

36 comments


It has taken us just under a week but we did it, we have decided we need to put a couple of panels up at each end, as we are rather exposed now…..and that should be us finished.
All we have to do now have to move all the plants that were in the jungle nearer to the fence and then create another border where the jungle was… OH has already bought me some lovely shrubs to start off with, just hope we can get them in before the bad weather sets in, here are the pics of the hedge free area even managed to paint the shed


The netting you can see on the lawn is down there to stop the badger from digging it up….fat chance!!

Your up late Sticki!! and thanks for that, I have to say we are both worn out.......not as young as we used to be lol

Ohhh! Thank gawd they're in! I can stop hopping around like some overexcited, deranged robin! It's just such a gorgeous fence, Dd, it's so pretty with the curved trellis, we have the three panels of the same one beside the greenhouse, and I never get tired of looking at it, and it's been up for over ten years! Plus, I haven't needed to put any preservative on it yet, always a bonus!!

Job professionally done!! Look forward to seeing the border planted.

17 Oct, 2011

Your hard work is showing dividends already, can`t wait to see what your going to plant.

17 Oct, 2011

 

It's looking really good DD. All the hard work is worth it when you can look back (cup of tea in hand) and just admire what you've done.

17 Oct, 2011

17 Oct, 2011

 

Well done both of you, you can relax now and take your time replanting, you deserve a rest...

17 Oct, 2011

 

Fantastic job Dd and hubby. You must be tired after doing all that, take a rest now, but not before you have planted that border up. Lol.

17 Oct, 2011

 

great job to you both Dotty, looks so tidy and amazing how much space is there isnt it, well done :o))))

17 Oct, 2011

 

Super job...well done both of you. Fence looks great, what a tiny little shed that is, or is that an optical illusion?
Looking forward to seeing it all planted up :)

17 Oct, 2011

 

Looks brilliant Dotty and so neat!

What new shrubs did you buy? :-)

17 Oct, 2011

 

Fabulous, what colour did you paint the fence?

17 Oct, 2011

 

It looks absolutely marvellous - well done Dotty. I don't think I've ever seen a prettier fence!!

17 Oct, 2011

 

Fantastic, a huge improvement. I too really like that fencing - a friend of mine has used the same one in her garden this summer.

17 Oct, 2011

 

Sheila thanks for that, we were going to have close borded but changed our mind at the last minute.
Val we used RONSEAL ECO SHED AND FENCE PRESERVER FOREST GREEN.
Scottish it is a small shed we have three all the same size, we did not have room for a large shed, so decided to make a feature of them....
San there is much more space than I first thought.
Grandmage, yes we are tired, we planted up most of it today!! worried about the weather changing.
Lincs we will relax when it is all finished, then we will have a small drink or two!!
Nana so pleased you like it.
Olive oil although it was not my idea, I am pleased with the results.
Frybo glad you approve.
Karen we started the planting today, hope to finish it tomorrow.
Thanks Shirley, that would be lovely to see you both again next year, always nice to see something new in the garden.
Poppylover thanks, it will be a little stronger than a cup of tea lol
Stroller you wont have long to wait.... weather permitting should finish tomorrow.
Mossy, if I could I would have a beautiful wall like yours, but this is the best we can do...
Mavis thanks, we like it.
Right you are TT, as long as they don't want us to do it
lol Costas it wont be long, most of the plants went in today.
Libet you are such a laugh!! yes you can relax now.....if ours last 10 years we will be very pleased.
Dawn I will put the list of plants on, when I do my next blog, I am sure you will like them.
Thanks everyone for all your encouraging comments.

17 Oct, 2011

17 Oct, 2011

 

Well done looks good.

18 Oct, 2011

 

Beautiful Dd...well done!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

Clarice and Motty thanks..

18 Oct, 2011

 

Sorry I'm late DD. Been away for a few days. What a lovely job, I really like that. You have made an excellent job of that, and like Shirley says, look forward to seeing it on your next Open Day.

22 Oct, 2011

 

Cinders you do not have to apologize, more importantly did you have a good time while you were away? and does that mean I might have the pleasure of seeing you again next year, because that would be nice.

22 Oct, 2011

 

I did have a relaxing time DD, feel fit and ready to go.... I certainly would like to come again next year, but would depend on whether Flori could pick me up. Don't think I could drive all down there on my own now. Fingers crossed.

23 Oct, 2011

 

Well if you can make it, we would love to see you both, lots of changes have been made, mostly for the better...so pleased you enjoyed your little break.

24 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks, Lol :o)))
