About me
Recently purchased a property with an extremely drab and boggy lawn .. had a garden desinger come in and create a functional room outside space, with some interesting planting. Have garden a bit (in my mum and dads garden) but this is the first time I have owned a real garden and it is the first time my wife has ever considered an interest in gardening.

Very Keen
