Hi all

Thinking of ripping up our rotting decking and creating a more contemporary garden. I want to lack a patio down at the end and start of our garden and around the edges build brick planters with bench space as in the photo.

I'm good with diy but not attempted a garden project like this before so any tips advice would be great. What skills do I need to research and how should I go about doing this project.

Thanks in advance for suggestions!

Get onto paving expert.com and have a read. Its very extensive on all things groundworks and paving. Brick planters will stain badly (as will rendered ones) if you dont water proof the inside.

Laying bricks is not hard if your careful and slow.

Come back if you have any specific queries.

That's great thanks. Planning on setting aside the May bank holidays for it. No doubt I'll be back...

Cheers
Jake
