All that time spent making sure that you have a picturesque garden that’s the envy of your neighbours and already the leaves are starting to turn from green to rust.

Set in the beautiful countryside of Carmarthenshire these gardens are almost like a scaled-down version of The Eden Project.

It was the compromise we made to have a house we wanted in the right location but it is still something I struggle with even 6 years on. When I sit and watch gardening programmes I dream of having the space to be able to recreate some of their looks, to be able to have a pond or water feature and the land to have a separate play area away from all my plants.

So, for now, I have had to learn how to make the most of our small garden all whilst keeping it functional for all of us as a family.  Continue reading “Making the Most of Your Small Garden”
