I'm not taking heart! This looks lovely! Mine look much bigger and more monolithic than this! I am doing a major rejig of the borders and returfing as well, to try to make them fit in with the garden....it will all look very different when it's finished...but hopefully it will be ok...eeeeeek!

I think I had what's known as a Dermot Gavin moment!! i.e. a structure thats far too big for the space and sticks out like a sore thumb!! :))

Karen you will get it sorted out, I have great confidence in your ability as a gardener to work around problems, please don't take too long, the suspense is killing me lol

What a lovely garden - although I now have gravel garden seeing this makes me miss the grass - very nice indeed - love the arch - I made a frame with wooden poles and growing honeysuckle up it

Paul this was when the garden was sooo neat and tidy....sigh!! it looks much shorter now the hedge has been removed, the grass border is bursting at the seams, but thank goodness the shrubs have grown (left of picture and nearly hiding neighbours huge shed with asbestos roof!!) looking forward to getting out and doing some pruning and splitting, at the moment we are waging war on the bl.... badgers, who come in rip up the grass!!
