Let's have it, what is your own garden like?

My gardens a state... I did only move house last Aug and apart from the veg patch I put in, I've been renovating the inside not outside, which paused last month prob until winter as to busy working! (Have half a bathroom two months after I started)

I mowed my badly overgrown lawns today and worked in my veg patch & finished building my pallet compost bin but no time for even strimming...

I want to create a central raised bed and out hanging wall troughs of more veg, herbs & flowers but no idea when!

Are yours adored, pristine relaxation spaces... Or overgrown messes?

    year 3 of a total renovation -- i have spent more hours than i care to admit on my garden 

    open to the bloody public next weekend as part of a local garden scheme -- regret agreeing to that -- stress stress stress 

    • Used to have three foot high grass and overgrown hedges back in the day, far too busy working. I live in a flat now so the gardener takes care of that side of things.
