    Very good job, thats a very nice long big garden you have! Reminds me of some of the groundforce programs as they did a lot of very similar gardens!

    Nice to see you replaced the tree you chopped down :) Out of interest why job it down?

    Good luck

    Thought having a big garden would be great too but it has been a lot of work. Hopefully once it is sorted things will be easier to control? The big ash had to come down because it was rotten and about to fall. It is a real shame but i still have an apple and a pear tree in the garden. Going to put in some decking next week just to finish the bottom area and then going to try and level the lawn area and turf that in September.

    heres a few pics of our cottage garden in the forest of dean... spent 100's of hours but not to much money on it... very chuffed with result apart from the fact weve just sold the house and now brought somewhere with an acre of garden.... looking forward to getting stuck into that one....

    Wow crossercuss, that is certainly the cottage garden! It must have taken an age? Still now that it's finished you can start on the new place with that acre.

    Had my decking laid now

    I think you will agree that it was a bit of a mess before i started !!

    Whilst it may not be perfect, it was all my own work which was very satisfying and saved a lot of expense

    I like the canvas roof, what's it hanging off and what did it cost you?

    Hi and many thanks.
    The cover is a shade sail originally from Australia but available in the UK from primrose-London website amongst others. This is the 3.6m square and is approx. £50 but budget for another £50 for fittings. You really need steel rope to get the required tension. There are also 5m and triangular versions available.
    It is fixed at the corners to fixed points such as a wall and a fence post.

    weve fitted these. you can get the fixings from other on-line retailers such as toolstation a hell of a lot cheaper. Good bits of kit though
