BBQ pit, Wendy house, potting shed. Backs on to meadow land and set in the Surrey Hills "area of outstanding beauty" Picture shows only half of the garden as you cant see the other half due to overgrown fir hedges.

About me
Self taught gardener. Never plan, just have ideas and see if they work. Some do, some dont. Inspired by my mum who was an amazing gardener. She taught me everything i know. Will spend every waking hour in the garden given the choice! Its my pride and joy.

Gardening expertise
Very Keen

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Our latest garden and finally after 2 years getting to the stage where we can "potter" and enjoy. Getting my partner involved and loving how much he is enjoying it. A complete garden novice!

Biggest gardening frustrations
rye grass weeds and bind weed

The gardening project I am currently working on
Oriental Grasses now installed in to Belfast sinks. Next project not known but i am sure it wont be long before i think of something! In the future.... a new patio and a sleeper edging to a sloped flowerbed
