Your garden is coming along nicely Irene, it'll look wonderful by summertime!:)

I'm not all that keen on the neighbours garden, too much hard landscaping and not enough green for my taste, I prefer your lawn with border arrangement, but we're all different:)

I agree with you Louisa, I would rather have a lawn too as you say we are all diferent

It's certainly progressing Irene...well done! thanks for showing us the progress!!
Yes, neat and tidy, your neighbour's garden but I prefer some lawn and much better for wildlife!!

Agree - next door's doesn't really look like a garden. Yours is coming on well. I like that little circular arrangement in the middle of the lawn, it sets of the rest very well.

He's, what's going in there(the middle circle) Irene? have you decided yet?

Paul the magnolia grandiflora is going in the middle of the Iawn just waiting for the chance of frost to completly be gone would hate for it to die as i paid quite a bit for it It was THE ONE I HAD TO HAVE lol

Neighbour doesent like my garden says there is no vision no,plann and no feature ,if money was no problem i would have a better garden but as it is i will just have to get it done as i can afford to.

Neighbours garden looks a bit like a garden centre to me. I also like softer and greener

Don't listen to your neighbour, just enjoy your own garden, I have no plan, vision or feature either! I'm looking forward to seeing that Magnolia when it's planted out, it'll look great!:)

Ignore your neighbour Irene..... It's your garden and it's your vision!
It's all coming along nicely and we are all anxious to see your Magnolia :)

oh, Lovely Magnolia are superb as a centrepiece! I'm sure it will look great!! !

Tell you neighbour if he's so concerned he could give ou so e cuttings/ seedlings etc from his garden! n second thoughts , just ignore him!!!!!!! you know what you like, not him!!!

Lovely Irene , I too like your circle I think we all have to have a little lawned area if only for the blackbirds to come along and dig up some worms I was watching some this morning on my little lawn which only takes me 20 mins to mow and strim around the edges . Tell your neighbour not to look over the fence till you finish and oh my what a surprise he will have lol .

Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement I will of course keep my lawn SHE can like it or lump it

Good work ..
interesting to see the different gardening styles.

We are all different Irene and each have our own ideas, its easy to see which is my preference by looking at a pic of my garden, keep on with what you are doing and enjoy it.
Looking at the photo I don't think your neighbour enjoys gardening.

I agree, and its not my idea of good garden design either. Do your own thing and ignore her.

I would sooner have your garden Irene. Your neighbour's
doesn't do anything for me. Too much hard landscaping to my mind. Yours will look so lovely with borders full of colour and a nice lawn. I too like your circle. The magnolia will look lovely there.
