I 'designed' my small-sized garden 14 years ago; I was hoping to achieve a calm oasis of Mediterranean chic. However, 4 kids, 3 large dogs and 6 chickens later it ended up looking like Steptoe's yard. We have broken slabs everywhere and no lawn.
Both working full time, looking after our elderly mums and being heavily involved in the local cricket club means that the garden is now a very sorry mess, having been neglected for all this time.
We recognise that taking 5 minutes 'time out' together is important for our own mental well-being and feel that it is time to go back to our dream of creating a calm oasis of Mediterranean chic.
A lawn and having somewhere to sit would make such a positive difference to mine and my husband's lives (and dogs too!)
