I always think that planting is the best bit - you've done all the hard work of preparation and now - PLANTS!!!

Well done - I bet you feel really good about your new-look front garden! :-)

I do Spritz, its a Pleasure Now, I lost my way with the Old garden, just put a few plants near the front door and that was it.. And I know how Lucky I am, Great Hub and all that :)))
Forgot to say, Theres 18. 75ltr bags of compost added plus 2 bags of Chicken Pellets ( pooh they stink ) and ive dug over those borders 5 times!!! Still finding bulbs and stones today haha..

i think your plants are going to do very well in all that compost.
the finished front looks great bye the way.............steve

Its looking great, just wait till the plants start to fill out.
I cant help buying on impulse, its a major failing of mine i'm afraid. All my plans become a bit blurred at the edges.
Almost one and a half metric tonnes of compost!! you should invest in a large "Radox" methinks!
Happy Easter.

Planting a new garden is the best bit! Phormiums and hostas will be good for giving foliage colour and if you want to add purple too, don't forget to look at heucheras (I've added eight different ones in various places this spring)

Followed this with interest Dee amazing that a relatively small area can take such a lot of work you must be so relieved to get to this stage.

It does look beautifully constructed wish you well with your plans - erm given the nature of my garden and its rather wild look , will leave it to others to give recommendations .lol
