|Our first project when we moved into our new garden - keeping the plants out of the dog's reach|
But before we can join Leo in a glass of Processo we have tasks at hand! So following on from our Bug Hotel we created at the end of last year, this month in the 'kiddy section of the garden' we will be making a mini pond, thanks to the RSPB and their give nature a chance booklet. So watch this blog and twitter for future development updates and the creation of caterpillar stones and ladybird golfballs!
We also have a rather dated decking area which I hope to renovate / bring back to life, so I have enlisted the help of the internet for some inspiration and I've seen some fantastic garden ideas which I've pinned to my board on Pinterest to help me turn this into a reality!

It's this area that I really want to focus on this year. I want to keep it more for the adults and somewhere to come out in the evening and chill once the little one is in bed. Especially as his room overlooks the back garden and with monitors I know he'll be safe whilst we are unwinding just below him.
I like the idea of a corner bench unit, similar to one I've pinned thanks to Homify, and as it's a unique space I'm thinking we can either make the bench (Royal We) from pallets or from wood sourced by our local DIY store. I like the idea of raised beds behind the seating area, this stops the dog from digging up any freshly laid plants, as she's not one for jumping these days.
With our geeky interior, I can picture some rather unique oversized cushions to complete the look this summer and then, then we can relax and party like we've just won an Oscar.......
So those are my ideas this year, bit extravagant maybe but definitely do-able! Do you have any garden plans coming up?
