About me

I have just moved to a house from a flat. I guess this is really my first garden. I've done bits and bobs for friends mainly weeding and mowing !
The garden is small (50 feet x 30 feet) approx.
The "top" of my garden is just that. it's nearly level with my roof ! I guess the angle of slope is 35 degrees.
A retaining wall has left me with a "stepped" garden on three levels. The garden faces S/W. I moved here with my wife and son just a couple of months ago and have done a bit( I guess it's the territorial caveman in me marking boundries ) will put photos up when i've worked out how to coerce my boyinto doing it for me ! Going for contemporary sort of look, lottsa containers,bamboo, grasses, and maye some mosaic bits like Gaudi.
