The Garden


Hi Everybody,

Well for the start of my blog I will introduce myself. I am Ashleigh, or Ash, 19 years old, living in Nuneaton and proud owner of my house and garden (:

Me and my boyfriend love the garden and aspire to having many happy years sitting on the Decking in the swingchair with a glass of some sort of cocktail and the sun shining down. So we got a move on with transforming a dead patch of grass at the top ofthe garden into some lovely decking with gravel stones and lights. You can see on my photos how far we have got so far with this idea.

Further down the garden there is quite a steep decline. We think we are going to flatten this out and put a brick wall up with a built in BBQ in the middle of the wall. From the wall to the patio we are going to deck it and then bring out the wood table and chairs we brought in the early Autumn Sale.

If anybody has any ideas or suggestions about my description of our ideas then please feel free to get in contact with me. I will be uploading pictures of the rest of the garden soon enough.
