Transforming the Garden

As I haven't posted (or for that fact made) anything in the last couple of weeks I thought I would update you with a general post about landscaping with links to projects that I have carried out over the last year or two.
All the lifting and shifting was done manually as I ran out of money for a digger, and all done by myself and my lovely wife Jill
I have tried to take before and after pics from roughly the same position
Hope you enjoy
