And now we have a beautiful garden ... one down, one to go!

OH popped upto homebase on saturday night to get a garden claw, he came back without a garden claw but £150 worth of gravel, planters and pots!!! Well yesterday we got cracking, OH turned it all over and then I helped with the weed sheet, gravel and potting the new rhodedendrens (not sure how that is spelt?)

OH has lived in this house for approx 11 years and I moved in with him just over 2 years ago, finally we have a garden which looks pretty instead of winning awards for the best grown weeds!!

Anyway here are the before and after pics!
