Really looking nice. Sure it’s going to be worth the wait / delays due to the weather

30-Oct-19: Update

Pleased to say the garden works are done.

It's a case now of staying off the grass for around 6-8 weeks, then putting a roller over it.

The better half has created a potting plan and wants to now get some colour into the beds so I sense a lot of trips to the garden centre over the coming weeks.

Few tweaks to the layout already planned for the new year. As you can probably see there is no way to get onto the side path from the patio without stepping on the grass. So we're going to address this with some additional slabs and another mini arc. This is nothing major or urgent but it will add a bit more practicality.

So here are the finished pictures:

Looks superb, really enjoyed the whole thread. 1 question though, why the panels at the side of the patio? Looking at 1 photo I can't really see there's anything behind them that needs hiding.

Glad you've enjoyed the thread. I hope it's provided some good insight into what to expect for anybody thinking of doing a building project at home.

With regards to your question about screening panels, we live on a slight hill and as a result my neighbour's house is slighter higher than ours. This also means they can see into our garden slightly when stood on their doorstep hence the screening panels. Our houses are on two different roads hence their front is our rear if you get me.

Yeah that makes sense. Our last house, our neighbour was in next street and similar. 😀
