New front garden!

This is our front garden after much hard work and cold spring weekends digging. It was full of weeds and rubble and we had to dig down deep to get out the dandelion roots. The road we live on is on a hill so the garden slopes. We decided to put in the raised beds out of reclaimed stone with a level lawn. We put in an old railway sleeper to raise the level of the soil by the path so it was easier to level it. The planting is sparse at the moment, we still need a few more shrubs but everything is coming back to life again now it's getting warmer.
