59/366: at last, a front garden

We had previously grassed the area so that it could be easily mowed while we were busy setting up the inside of the house. Then, finally, early in 1987, it was time to create our front garden.

To build up some garden beds, we brought in many metres of topsoil. The clay, or intermediate soil, of this area was not particularly conducive to planting a garden.          With a little fernery in front of the side picket fence, we moved to the area next to the footpath.I loved, and still love, the look of conifers and different shades of green, so with this vision in mind we set about forming a welcoming display. People walking by would see this, and we would also get a nice view from our bedroom bay window; a double achievement!
