Garden redesign

So we have had a brainstorming session and have a draft - but pending wife approval.

the artist impression is this....

looks like bloody centre parcs 😂 let’s see what I can get past the missus. 

I would very much like to sneak in some of their artwork. My mate Ross and his Dad Neil are incredible guys - check out this they did a few years ago

What a waste of wood, you'd be better off using that to to shore up the gable ends in the garage.

Tell Ross and his dad, it's very dangerous putting a low roof above a trampoline.

Is that yellow path made from Cotswold shail? Tell the misses you  need about 20 tonne, then the kids can barrow and spread the 15 tonne left over to make a nice road up to the workshop.  🚜

Had a day and a half with the digger man and me running the dumper truck round.

drains now relocated, new drain for surface water for the patio area, hot tub area dug, 40 oak sleepers coming Wednesday and 70m2 of sandstone paving enroute. It’s a right feckin mess outside. Oh and the missus still isn’t sure what she wants 🥴C5F601C5-A1BE-44D4-8022-91002298B0F0.jpeg.477444d242e7577be6ea253010bf8399.jpegBDA1C1B8-B168-4508-B3BF-541FA5109B83.jpeg.c843a91a245b18846a094ae0c5e934cd.jpeg
 

we do have some painted lines out there now though - so the path and patio area is defined. Let’s see what some of these sleepers look like stood up in the trench - see if she likes that - we have to somehow bring some cosiness to the garden area

I read that as cosines in the garden but I'm going off on a tangent.

Good luck with the redesign @Barrykearley, I really like reading and watching this kinda stuff. One day I'll do my own!

I feel your pain, it’s a gender thing! 

We had our garden redesigned by landscape specialists around 12-15 years ago and a great job they made of it too. However, I’ve now lost count the number of times my wife has changed her mind about the layout and altered it since, with endless replantings, reshapes and rejigs. 

The original landscape design cost a fortune and the endless redesigns are still costing me a fortune. Latest thing is a green oak pergola/pavilion/summer house construction going up shortly. It’ll be a lovely thing, for sure, but will only keep her happy for a short while. 
Trouble is, every time I bravely broach the subject of why can’t you be satisfied with the garden as it is, I get the question about my car buying addiction!🙈

I don’t have a leg to stand on really! 😂

It’s already pissing me off - a lot @Spinney

Ive now been presented with a million pictures and links of summer houses and different furniture. And a question this morning - is the path to wide ? 

Ffs - all I want is the plan - stop chopping and changing and let me get the f££k on with it.

when this is all done - I’m buying another car.

We do have some progress - much indecision from her indoors - but we do have a section almost finishedE064CB77-9FE4-4949-8930-7319DBB33CE3.thumb.jpeg.72394c197eb0f0a8def08c90edaf08e3.jpeg

Muffin would have absolutely no chance of catching any mice @ChrisJ - there’s some nice special all you can eat black buffet boxes down for the mouse. I was stunned at just how blatant he was running around the garage.
