Our garden has been one of the last things we’ve sorted since we moved in around two years ago (and by ‘we’ I pretty much mean Phill as he’s done all of the hard work!). We knew we wanted something that would be low maintenance but that would reflect the inside of our house.
We used sleepers as a border to divide the garden into different areas – gravel at the back perfect for BBQ’s, and then fake grass in the middle. We wanted our garden to act as a bit of an extension to inside the house, so to keep with that style we painted the fence black and created a border of various grasses. We also planted some bamboo and an acer to add a bit of a Thai vibe.
My Grandad also made me a herb planter which I absolutely love. It’s filled with mint, sage, basil, rosemary and thyme and I added some DIY wine cork markers (purely for the prettiness).
To finish the garden off, we hung some festoon lights in the corner and an insect house on the fence as well as a fire pit for summer night drinks in the garden 🙂
