Not really have a circle that is squared off ie slabs that match the circle. try googling squaring off stone circle or looking up on Homebase or similar site. then take out with how far you need i.e. removing all grass

Re: Landscaping my garden

The small part of the garden is now cut to size but needs a few more plants. I also had a visit from a lovely woodpecker who often appears - he probably lives in the nature reserve which the garden backs onto.

Re: Landscaping my garden

If I may make a small suggestion.
If I were you I would first work out a budget you intend to spend before thinking of any garden designing.
All too easy to overspend having gone half way in any alterations

Re: Landscaping my garden

Me overspend? No No!! As for a budget......I have far more important things to spend money on, so this is a "what can I do for the least amount spent" project. Trying obviously to make as good a job of the project as possible.

With a decent budget - I could have all new paving, patio, drive etc etc........... but I prefer to spend on other projects ........ me!! One life.......live it!!

Edit - there should be two more photos - similar to the ones pre-project!

I think an oblong garden gives far more possibilities than my square garden. Such as...........imagine a path from one end to the other.......curving around with various features and planting ........ seating in shady areas...........and seating in sunshine. Lots of possibilities there.

Re: Landscaping my garden

Garden project almost finished. Still looking for a Cornus Alba - hole dug ready for planting and need another three bags of gravel/pebbles - hopefully in stock from this afternoon.

The labouring man I'd arranged, disappeared. Rather than sit around idle, I've done the whole job myself. Fortunately I back onto a nature reserve and the turf I've taken up has created a pile almost as high as I am.........and that will create a barrier for anyone intending to venture into my garden and a good source of compost in years to come.

Re: Landscaping my garden

Well done Lindy !
I have got no further I need a patio put down and had selected some pavers but found the actual ones I wanted cost £2000 pounds - that’s before the labour costs . They were called weathered forest and the builders suppliers had quoted for forest ( half the price )
