I had no idea just how much work our garden would take. My plan was to just repaint the shed and tidy it up a bit – then we realised the shed was completely rotten and held together by duct tape. Disaster.
Since the weather turned a little bit better, we’ve been out doing as much as we can to make it semi-decent. Starting with scarifying the grass, cutting back trees and bushes and de-weeding the soil areas. My goodness, what a mammoth task. Since I dug out all the dead/rotten/rubbish plants, all the soil is looking a little bare. Once we figure out exactly what we’re going to do we will add the plants – no point yet just to maybe dig them out again at a later date. It might look a bit bare but it looks a hell of a lot tidier than it did before!
