Bill Sheppard, My Back Garden (HU16)

Styles: Allotment or vegetable plot, Suburban

Soil types: Clay

Soil drainage: Moist but well-drained

Light: Full Sun

Aspect: West

Exposure: Exposed

Typical modern garden with lawn, garage and greenhouse. The field on the L/H side caused problems with weeds but laying a strip of black polythene and gravel has virtually eliminated weed encroachment through the fence. Approx 1/3 of the lawn was dug over for vegetable growing. Beside the greenhouse are 3 compost makers and I also have 2 x 137 ltr water butts with rain water diverters catching water from the house roof.
