Garden pics

This is what our garden looked like 12 months ago, more like a jungle than anything else!
After culling the ferocious weeds, the next stage was to build up the middle section to combat the slope
The bottom level was then paved in order to accommodate a shed in the future:
The rest was then laid with artifical lawn and slate chippings, and at last it's finished (well, apart from the shed!!)
