    What a transformation. Well done.
    I know how hard gardening is, I bought a brand new house and the garden was just bricks and mud

    Wow that looks great. I'm with Andrew on gardening though. Don't mind putting in patios and paths but the mowing and the weeding mularkey I don't enjoy.

    Wow that is a big difference from the first few photos lol, can't understand how people can allow there garden to get like that and it doesn't take much effort to mow the lawn.

    Your garden is like ours, not so wide but long lol

    When we moved in the dear old lady had passed away and it was orginally a cottage style garden with no lawn, then it was let out for a couple of years and they never touched the garden, hence why overgrown so much. Was a shame really had to take so much up and start from scratch but at least we have a lawn now and big 10ft by 8ft shed. Just got to finnish the top bit now, new patio area and screen for hiding the wheelie bins. Then planting again!!!

    Thanks for all the comments

    Brings back memories of our old house - we had to clear a massive Russian Vine, take down a gazebo, clear a hedge that had grown into/around a chain link fence etc etc.

    We just gravelled the lot after I'd built a 4m square deck at the bottom of the garden!

    Good work there Perry, I know what its like - do you have access to the garden from the back or did everything have to go through the house (like we had to - 3 ton of gravel shifted by buckets lol!)
