1) I definatly intend on getting some type of pergola, he keeps saying no… but we all know I will get one.

2) I want a raised bed in the fron garden made of brick in an “L” sahpe with trellis at the top to hide the bins.

3) Will definatly paint all the fences to hide the dreary muddy brown colour.

4) Will have my patio area laid

5)A path way of some sort out the back

Easy peasy… for me hehe

I'll mainly be sorting my planting out, originally planted up 3 years ago, now that shrubs are beginning to mature, the perennials I planted for instant colour are needing to be split and moved.

Hope you get your way Mookins, I thought that 'No means yes' only applied to women !! I have to say that it does seem to be a good idea. It sounds like quite a transformation for your garden, hope you get it all done in time for Spring. I've nothing planned for next year apart from moving stuff arround.

No apologies for the darling squizzle Mookins...he's cute as a button!

My garden needs a bit of an overhaul...the soil needs replenishing & the rockery re-shaping.
The greenhouse needs to be put to more efficient use instead of just a suntrap for cats & some planters & pots re-arranging.
The decking wants stripping & sealing properly & the patio is crying out for a makeover...
So...plenty to be getting on with there I think! Just need to win the Lottery & I can put my feet up while someone else does it all!!

But where would be the fun in that eh??!!! ;o)

Sounds good Mookins. Gardening is great as it's constantly evolving and changing. Apart from the hard landscaping there are planting plans to make and alter so it is never boring.
Myself, fingers xd will have moved next month so all my plants will have a permanent home instead of pots so I will enjoy watching them hopefully flourish.. I already have my packs of seeds annuals and veg, sitting on the desk nest to me. Also got passion flower seeds so want to get them going.
Roll on 2010

Oooh hubby is going to be busy Mookins, hope you get at least some of it done! I've got an L shaped brick raised bed with trellis behind and it's great. I can get behind the trellis so it's easy to weave the clematis in and out of it.
No great plans for my garden next year.....yet! Had a bit of a makeover this year so things need to re-establish but that doesn't mean some things won't get moved around. lol
