    Nice garden path, OP, nice decking, Liner33.

    Here's mine - out in the desert, it's miracle that I've got anything green at all! Had some new grass laid recently, and you can see the colour mismatch. but it's a lovely place to spend an evening here in Doha.

    Only landscaped last year and viewed through this afternoon's rain streaked windows, hopefully it will be a riot of colour soon (fingers crossed!)

    We moved in in August to a 10m by 8m garden, almost entirely grass that sloped up by 1m to the back of the garden. It also inexplicably had 13 small fruit trees. In the third week of april we started working kn it. We've since removed the hill, created raised beds, built a retaining wall from sleepers, taken out roughly 30tonnes of clay and other material. It's taken roughly 300 man hours to get to this point with me and missus working. We've still got a lot to do but we're getting there

    We did used to have a pergola

    When we moved in we had a hillside





    So we got a digger in



    Then after a few years







    Took a rather large sycamore down





    Plan is to make a seat out of the stump

    Recently replaced the decking myself , it had done pretty well as it was down for 15 years and we wont be here for much longer

    That's a smashing job. Well done; looks a lot of hard work

    Show us your garden

    Moved into this house in December 2016. Garden was a mess over grown , huge slope.

    We had 70 tonnes of soil bought in to level out. Had an outdoor kitchen / bar built. Seating area with fire pit. An above ground pool and children’s play area. April of this year we pruned back a lot of trees and cleared out the back and replaced the lawn opposite the play frame with some Astro turf so the kids have a useable space all year .

    Before

    During after

    Some super gardens here.
    Love the fire pit with seating - how does it draw in air?

    We just use logs on top and remove the grill. However I will probably change it for gas one soon and run a pipe to cylinder. Even kiln dried logs can be too smoky .

    Thanks Gents, it's like the Golden gate bridge, constant work- you never finish. But I enjoy it.

    Superb gardens on show here, better get a move on with my own, composite decking to go down first 😀

    Had my garden featured on BBC Scotland TV weather via social media back in February when it was utterly baltic (even for Scotland) and we managed to make an ice balloon on the patio table. It’s all grown back now though, due a cut at weekend...

    Show us your garden







    Moved in a year ago today. Still work in progress. Another patio section at the back of the garage for an outdoor cooking area is planned.

    It’s not the biggest but it’s a really sun trap plus I prefer to sit in a garden rather than work in one.

    Looking forward to seeing how the Wisteria matures against the garage wall as well.

    Beautiful garden Steve, love the look of your stone built house too. Was it a conversion by any chance?
    Cheers,

    Still work in progress, creating a kitchen garden at the top end (where all the mess is) which will be ready, hopefully, by next spring. Big plans for a lower patio level by the sun room with formal pond/fountain and continuation of a recent yew hedge we planted. Heavily into my topiary/niwaki!

    Always wonder about the cemetery, if it's a converted church?
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    took a fair bit of digging , but a Football pitch is much better than a graveyard next to it !
