Jasalim, we have a double allotment and this is right across the side front, not in front of the house.

The Estate. This shot was taken from across the road. Note the lack of grass on the footpath, hence the rather dry appearance of everything. Like everyone else, we need rain.

The Estate, it was a bare allotment when we bought it. Because our road is quite busy, we decided a screen across the front would give us a little privacy in that area.

You've certainly done an excellent job with that screen, abwal - it'd almost put you in a different world, well away from the traffic.

But I do love all those colours in your hedge - keeps your eye moving and appreciating. (Y)

Looking great, ab. I'm sure those hedges helped a lot to reduce noises and give you more privacy.

What splended colours Ab - certainly makes a garden to have the different colours contrasting ea other.

Can u let us in on what some of them are :?: The red coloured leaves & the green/white shrub looks interesting?
