Project garden makeover


I now have another week off work due to still having holiday to use up so I thought I would set myself a little challenge, my last holiday off work was used to decorate the hall, stairs, landing and lounge so this time round I thought I would have a project garden makeover.

I want to get the gardens free from weeds and looking a bit more lively. I love spending time in our gardens when I get time, I am the only one with green fingers in our house, Ian wouldn’t know a weed from a plant….Or so he says anyway.

I had our gardens looking rather nice early last summer, I then had my car accident back last June leaving me in a wheelchair and with nerve damage, since then they have been very neglected and they are now looking rather horrible.

I am now back on my feet after having intense physio and its all systems go for project garden makeover, I’m feeling rather excited to be able to have the time to get them looking alive and in some sort of order again. I am ready to tackle those horrid weeds in the garden.


My poor garden needs

Clearing from clutter that has accumulated over the past few months.

Bushes need trimming down.

A good jet wash.

Freeing from weeds.

The pots need re-potting.

The ornaments are also in need of a good clean.


Fence panels & decking needs painting/staining.

Hopefully the weather will be nice enough for me to get out there and get started. I have been wanting to get outside and tidy up for months now but been unable to do so.

I am looking forward to planting in some new plants once the gardens are ready to do so. I love nice colorful gardens I think they look beautiful and cheery. I am looking to create a nice peaceful, colorful garden with a nice water feature, somewhere we can sit quietly with a nice cold drink a nice magazine and just enjoy our nice colorful garden.

Now time to dig out my gardening gloves, pray for nice dry weather and get stuck in to this new project I have set myself.

  1. My garden is exactly the same at the moment – your list could be mine. I’m trying to muster up the energy and enthusiasm to start on it but I find I have to be in the right mood! Hopefully I’ll be more inspired in the lighter evenings when the clocks go forward next weekend!

  2. Glad you’re back on your feet after the physio! My garden is also in dire need of some sorting out; always the same story at this time of year. Good luck with getting it done!
