    It is a Brazilian hardwood called "Ipe", pronounced "Eepay"
    It is actually decking made up into fence panels.

    Thought I'd try to kick this thread back into life for the new growing season. New house so new garden, currently low maintenance with hard landscaping, lots of gravel and lawn and some interesting shrubs. There's a few Pieris japonica and they look like they're on fire right now:

    That's a very pretty garden! I've just moved house and the garden is a bit of a blank canvas at the moment with large areas of lawn, gravel and decking. There are a few nice shrubs like the pieris around the edges but otherwise it's quite featureless. I'm doing a bit of wait and see this growing season to allow me to get on with the house while getting a feel for the garden.

    Gardens are such a long term thing! Ours was very over grown, loads of trees but with no borders. !2 years on, there are alot less trees but the borders are still taking awhile to fill!

    Ongoing levelling project:
    Before:
    Starting the retaining wall (shows the gradient well!):
    After 60 tons of earth had been removed:
    Next step will be patio on the lower part next to the house, steps between the walls, a new back fence, and then watch the lawn grass grow with a beer in hand!

    Halitosis: I am very impressed. Soon you will be enjoying lawn weeds and moss like the rest of us.

    For the first time this year, I'm now actually trying to grow something: have been sowing grass seed and every morning I open the curtains in expectation... I guess good gardeners have plenty of patience!
