I am very pleased with my new garden and I have received many pleasing comments about it from friends and neighbours. The garden is looking like a mature one although it was planted only two months ago. It already seems to be fulfilling the brief of bright all year around colour; as soon as one plant finishes flowering another one bursts into bloom. I am grateful to Paul and Helen for all their suggestions for the planting, lighting, the water feature and unobtrusive storage which have all combined to ensure that all of the garden is used (formerly a large shed cut off the back of the garden) and that garden looks great in the evening. I am no longer ashamed of my garden and now enjoy showing it off.
