The Perfect Garden

The Perfect Garden

Two years on, we’re still working on our perfect garden. I tell a lie, two years on and the work on our perfect garden has come to a standstill. After getting a builder in to divide the garden for us we have yet to turn the garden into a rainbow garden (despite planting a couple of trees)

The Perfect Garden

Ideally my perfect garden will have the following areas:

Area for the dogs to be in without causing too much mess
We have already sectioned off the garden to be a dog zone and dog-free zone.

Grassy area for having summer tea parties

By summer tea parties I’m thinking dolls tea parties with the girls kind not the alcohol fuelled adult kind!

A patio area with a table and possibly a barbecue
I’ve always liked the idea of eating outside but never actually managed it.

A play area for the girls
I have a vision of a lovely wooden play area with a slide and swing with bark bases. None of the plastic rubbish here please!

Flowery area with all the beautiful flowers
Rainbow garden

In the raised beds that we have surrounding the garden I would love to have a rainbow themed garden with sections dedicated to each colour. And in each section there would be flowers of that colour. The fencing would be painted to match as well. Would be quite spectacular.

Expert Advice

I think I need to take some of Phil Spencer’s advice! This little video gives simple steps on how to plan your perfect garden.

Are you a keen gardener? Any tips for creating the perfect garden?

    That does sound ideal! I want the ideal garden. I am very very far from having it! But baby steps I reckon. And we can’t do too much because we are only renting.

    Wow one day I would love the perfect garden but right now it is perfect for the kids which is all that counts.
