Making a garden beautiful is not always about the aesthetic tasks. Some behind the scenes work is required to form a good foundation. The concrete driveway and path that were provided with the house were very simple and basic, and we needed space next to the house for our two cars.
Having done a great job with the picket fence and gates with a friend’s help, my husband set about digging channels for good drainage. It has been very useful being married to a tradesman for projects of this nature.
