Rachel, My Garden (RH1)

Styles: English cottage, Courtyards and small terraces, Suburban

Soil types: Loamy

Soil drainage: Moist but well-drained

Soil pH: Neutral

Exposure: Sheltered

Hardiness: Hardy (H4)

This is my back garden, which we re-designed in Summer/Autumn 2005, so 2006 was it's first real year of growth. It's incredibly small & also fairly shady, however, the gravel makes it much easier to deal with throughout the year & also seems to give it a warmer, sunnier feel, with lavenders & other sun loving plants doing quite well so far. It still needs a lot of work with the planting, but is now infinitely better than the patch of damp, muddy lawn that we had before, which was impossible to venture out into between September & May, without covering the house in mud.
