We moved into our ‘new house’ last September. It was a long haul go get here. We put our house on the market in October 2015 & had 3 buyers for our house throughout that time. During that (almost) year we lost hope that it would ever happen & even on moving day, which was a disaster in itself, we daren’t believe it until we had the keys in our hands.
We loved our old house & we had some lovely neighbours & friends there but our garden was the size of a postage stamp & we rarely used it for this reason. The house we have now, is lovely & the garden is perfect. It’s not huge but plenty of space for a trampoline, which was the main motivation for the kids to want to move, and some nice seating areas.
I like gardening, I’m not accomplished at all & I don’t know much about it really but I love the garden to look nice & enjoy the ‘homely’ feel it creates. We have a small bit of garden to the side of our house which we’re planning to use as a little veggie patch. We need to dig it & put some raised beds in but I’m so confused & overwhelmed at what we can plant when, it’s a whole ‘thing’!! Any advice or recommendations would be very gratefully received! We’re hoping to get some of that work done this weekend. I say we, James is less enthused about it than me. He loves the garden to look nice but hates the process.
So yes, some tips & pointers please!
