At the age of 75 (Faye) & myself at 78 we both enjoy nothing more than a day spent in & out of the house to have the maximum use of our medium sized garden in our home since we married 54 years ago.
Our front garden is separated in two parts by our driveway & garage. In front of our lounge widow we have a small lawn with bedding plants on three sides - a host of golden daffodils & azaleas in spring & small shrubs all year. The other half is Faye's project with ground cover plants & shrubs in progress. Our back garden is a poorly lawn surrounded by hedging & small shrubs. Our swing - purchased 5 years ago - is our way of relaxing between grass cutting & hedge trimming.
Unfortunately as the years pass the garden work has become more onerous & as we have no plans to move house we do need to plan for the future.
