Front gardens are boring.
Well I dont think I am alone when I say that front gardens are boring.
Whilst I have two weeks off with my boys during the school holiday, we have been on several bike rides. I have noticed that there are an awful lot of front gardens that are left to their own devices or just not loved enough.
Mine is one of those that is not loved enough. It gets a trim when the grass is long and every now and then the roses get dead headed and some weeds get pulled up.
So I thought it was time to change it. The boys are over the woods the wife is at work so out come the spade. A few hours later and all the turf is up and there is a sought of backbone to the design in my head.
I have a brief for my self. “Maximum colour all year round” oh and I’ve promised my self not to try and shoe horn things in.
My wife phoned at lunch time to see how I was, I explained that I had removed a little bit of lawn. She didn’t sound to happy, as she feels that she is going to have no lawn left at all.
When she got home though she was over the moon as she realised it was the front garden I had lifted the turf from. She can’t wait to see it take shape and help out with the planting.
I have a morning of removing roots and weeds then I can dig in some of my compost to get things going.
Any suggestions on plants/flowers for the front garden will be greatly recieved.
