West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Thought I'd ask you lovely people for some suggestions for the "patio" area of our tiny garden. Here's a pic of it as it was before I moved in, but the only changes to the flagged area are that we now have a picnic bench adjacent to the grass, and I've removed all the stones from the little borders and popped in a few small evergreens. It's not really doing it for me. We keep the wheely bin and a garden storage box under the window. Would love to get rid of the flagstones and replace with something nicer but too many other things to spend money on unfortunately. I'm very limited to how many flagstones I could remove now as the wheely bin needs to travel across to the side gate adjacent to the house, and the bench takes up most of the room. Do you think I should go with a lot of tall potted plants? I was going to go with bamboo as per a previous suggestion but not sure it will give me that enclosed in greenery feeling I'm looking for.
Grateful for any suggestions as it all seems a bit hopeless at the moment! (On the bright side, the rest of the garden looks great).
Whoops. Forgot to mention the most important thing - it's shady for most of the time.
