I have never ever done any gardening/garden designing in my life and I need your expert help please!?? I live in a terraced house and have a horrible, nasty, scruffy back yard (16 feet wide by 13 feet length - approx). I am getting a builder in to level it all out (on 2 seperate levels) with a step in the middle. Either side of the step I am having a retaining wall which I will line and fill with plants / flowers. I am currently trying to make major decisions like what paving / brick to use. I have been to B&Q today and I am bamboozled by choice. I don't want the flags/paving to match as the back of my house is rendered (a 'butter' colour) and I don't want it to look too yellow/gold. I like the traditional garden look - nothing modern... Can anyone give me any advice / pointers on where to start. My budget for the whole thing is roughly £1200.
Thank you .
I have attached a photo of the shape of courtyard I am aiming for (but the brickwork all over the floor is out of my price range)
