Anyway, the children have been playing out, the washing has been on the line, and it's been fabulous. The only problem is our new-house-garden. Do all new house gardens suck? Ours is grassy, which apparently is a bonus. It was turfed shortly before we moved in, and the grass is doing well. It's also not a bad size. But it is just grass, and fence, oh, and a beech hedge at the front.
So I already told you about our playhouse going in. The roof is now fixed on that, and it's looking awesome. Many thanks to Kenny for that. We also have plans to make the back garden more useful. At the moment it's a slope, but we're hoping to get somewhere to sit out and eat, drink and be merry. Something that looks a little bit like this one by 3D Garden Design. We're just waiting to get some quotes for doing that. I hope it doesn't take too long. Can anyone recommend any landscape gardeners in the Largs area?

we're not sure if they're going to climb

Sigh. Maybe we should all move to France.
While you're advising me, can you tell me what to do about the monoblock at the front? The builders say it is a kind that doesn't need sharp sand, but if that's the case how do we avoid getting stuff growing out of it?
