Grass, gravel and planting area …

It’s taken a long time to get here, but the back yard is looking much better now the turf is down and the gravel border is finished down one side. I also added a small planting area for any climbing flowers or maybe some sunflowers … In the future …

The turf went down several weeks ago now and it’s looking really great. There are a few small areas down the sides that need some attention but on the whole it’s perfect.

The remainder of the top soil we used for the turfed area was used in the planting section, so nothing had gone to waste and it looks as though we planned the whole thing. And the border is looking great and will be even better once the plants have been potted up and dotted around the edges.

Our cat especially liked the grassed area. Lounging around in the sunny corner over the bank holiday weekend and leaving large sprawling cat sized dents in the grass.

There is still a lot to be done in the back. This is probably only half completed so far.
