    Hi all.

    Looking to get the Garden looking like the pic below, anyone know roughly a cost for this? or would it be doable myself??

    Size of Garden is quite small - 5m width, one side is 8.7m whilst the other side is 7.3m

    Looking at Decking the width (5m) x 2.4m, laying artificial grass for the remainder

    We want a low maintenance child friendly space.

    Garden is currently full of loose stones and partially flagged - Decking covering flags is the plan.

    Thought please appreciated

    Thanks.

    From this

    To this... hopefully!

    whoops - sorry I missed the question within the first line....I'm used to seeing a question at the end, it seems. My fault.

    Hard to say the cost as it depends on what the trades in your area get away with charging. You'd need to get a few quotes.As to whether you could DIY then we can't answer that (even if we spot the question! ;) ) as you haven't said how competent you are.

    As an aside, I don't see that as a very child-friendly garden...sharp corners, plants to eat, potentially moist wood to slip on....and artificial grass gets very hot in the sun: not good for tiny feet.

    How far do you wish to take the "wrap in cotton wool" approach to kids? If you want a very child-friendly garden I'd suggest one big lawn, to be honest.

    When I say child I mean as in 5yr old, old enough to not eat plants I hope! just the odd fall about here 'n there

    I'll make sure to put the question at the end next time for the hard of reading.

    Thanks for the reply though, least I got one :)
