Dividing up a big space

The best thing I ever did was dig up the top half of the lawn as it really brought the garden up to the house.  Luckily, I had a few tall trees established in the middle section, which form a nice screen.  It is so nice not to look straight at the ugly fence anymore!  (It has been banished and the lovely beech hedge can now be seen in all its glory).

Here are various before and after pictures
Before the top of the lawn disappeared
Taking the initiative....

First season - summer (planted with annuals)

Spring this year - with the newly reduced patio...

Viewed from the remaining lawn round the back of the border. Still room for footy and cricket (and cats).
