my garden which had been neglected for 5 years was in a need for a good shake up.1st the caravan had to go.then for this year i went mainly with annuals but still left something with a bit of maturity being the pencil pine and banksia.i painted the fence mission brown.put turf where the van had been.I found that using a combination of merigolds and petunias with vincas that there was a good balance over summer.with the option of changing to bulbs etc over winter to spring.[/i]

Like the before & after photos.. it makes you feel good after a big cleanup such as you had.....my biggest regret & I have been in this house 10 years..is that I didn't take before shots...oh well...we all learn from our mistakes...

Same. I wish I had taken photos before I started working in the garden. :(
