Garden project No 1

One area of garden in need of a tidy up, it's behind the house and we look out onto it from the bedroom window, so was getting a bit of an eyesore when I opened the curtains each morning! It took a week to do on and off and Joe finished the steps for me at the weekend:

Thanks Digindeep, the bed was there when we moved in but I changed some of the planting, The steps are just timber frames, there is a base of soil and then we put some weedmatting and then shoved some pea shingle on that.
It's a big old garden and we have a lot to do, but we are renovating the house at the moment so the garden is low on the list of priorities, so I try and do what I can, I'm not too good with the real  manual stuff cos my back can't take it! :xconfused:

Did you want to see our veggie garden??
