Paula Howarth, Back Garden (PR25)

Styles: Suburban

Soil types: Clay

Soil drainage: Moist but well-drained

Soil pH: Neutral

Light: Full Shade, Full Sun, Partial Shade

Aspect: South, West

Exposure: Sheltered

This is the garden as it is now, as we have inherited it. It has some good plants but the weeds have been allowed to take over and there are an army of snails. The garden needs some love and re-designing. The soil seems quite good but we have yet to test it to see exactly what type it is.

Biggest gardening accomplishments
Lived in a house in Northants for seven years, when we moved in the back garden was just like a field all it had was two apple trees and grass and weeds by the bucket load. By the time we had finished it was a little piece of paradise!!!

Biggest gardening frustrations
Having to listen to neighbour noise, although thankfully it's only occasional!! We have loads and loads of slugs and snails that eat everything in sight, they need to be eliminated!!!!

The gardening project I am currently working on
We have just moved into a house with gardens back and front. Both gardens have some nice plants in but have been left to be taken over by weeds, so that is the first job to do. Being overlooked is another problem that needs to be solved!
