The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

A new start


Encouraged by the super gardens shown by fellow members. I have had to start tiidying up my own This is the result in front of house, none of these stones were visible, old foliage was squashed and dirty. The shrubs were unpruned. I also removed all the Duckweed from my pond with a rake and a sieve and finally squirting water from the hose to wash it over the edge I hope to buy some Goldfish to start again.
I gave up the pond after the third lot of fish were taken by the Heron.
But joining this Web Site has encouraged me to clear the decks and start again. Not the best time to do it as there are limits to what brings colour at this season. I wil rely on shrubs till the Spring..

Congratulations and what a lot of hard work. It's paid off as its all looking so smart and tidy.It will be nice to restock the pond again but watch out for those Herons!
Best wishes.

Well done - I bet you are pleased with your achievements! I always feel better when I've tidied up, especially when i've cut the lawn edges for some reason.

Cutting the lawn edges is like putting a full stop at the end of a sentence isnt it!! I like doing it too.
Poaannua, your front garden looks lovely and so does your house. I would love a rummage in those borders - i would have a lovely day!!

Thanks for your comments, and the reminder to mow the lawns, let alone cut the edges, it has rained so much the lawn is a Moss bed, lovely to walk on with bare feet.

Love the look of your garden Poaannua, I bet it has a lovely 'feel' to it, I like old gardens they are sort of warm and friendly! Well done on the clearing you have done, I am sure your plants appreciate it.
