very nicely done, love your sitting out area.

Hope you are able to find some more plants you like and that the garden gets a few sun-baked days!

Thank you Sarah, it's amazing really that I've bought so many plants but its still not full !

Your plants will spread out Gina, Give them space and fill the gaps with Annuals, love your raised beds and the rocks/boulders, also the slate (looks like slate) round the pond, your garden will have a fuller lusher look in a couple of weeks, once the weather warms up proper :)

Yeah Dee you're right lol I'm just way too impatient !

Yes, it IS slate,

I'm really chuffed how its all turned out cos I designed the whole garden myself.

Looks fantastic! I love the step up to the arch it really draws the eye. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your recliners? I need to find a good comfy chair for my OH to sit out as she has spinal problems and our bench is just too unforgiving. Thanks :)

Thank you Olive and Paul.

Thanks Red, to be honest I can't remember where I bought the recliners, I do all my shopping online, but if I remember I'll let you know.

Dee yes rain here too but it didn't stop them, they arrived at 8 and had the shed , trellis and plants down by 1, they couldn't start the fencing because of the rain. Look out for my blog cos I need some advice from everyone.

Booboo you have done a really good job so far, I love the use of those rocks and your pond. It looks as if you have also got a good backdrop of trees at the top end beyond the trellis it will be interesting to see the second stage of your garden.
