Before and After Small Garden – Life Hacks Tips

Before and After Small Garden


I bought my home end of October and spent 4 months looking at this awful garden through winter. I just couldn’t handle looking at it any longer, so I decided I would have to do something about it. I really couldn’t afford to get anyone to help me (very tight budget),

so I decided I would do it on my own. I am 5’3″ tall and a 45 year old woman, so I’m VERY proud of myself for this. I wanted a woodland feel.

End of March beginning of April

In total this has taken me around 5 solid 8 hour days to get it complete, this includes laying down the weed control fabric, spreading out 3 tonne of gravel, lifting and relaying the slabs and building the decked area and raised border (made from old used scaffolding boards)
cost –
– weed control fabric (this was also used for the small front garden area too) 35
– 3 tonne of gravel (this was also used for the small front garden area too) 120
– decked area and raised border (used scaffolding boards) 380
Total cost 535

I made a bird feeding station out of willow tree branches that had been cut down and given to me I stripped the bark off and screwed it all together
