Tub would mak a great potato farm, sink would be a fun fountain.!

I once had to build an outhouse and I used a sink similar to that as the urinal. Hung a mirror and grab bar above it.

Looks like you're going to have a busy couple of days coming up ;). Nice to have that extra space!

Any thoughts on what you're going to do with it?

Oh my goodness it's lovely! I love the variations in stone on the walls. You've done a tremendous amount of work and it's paid off in spades!!

Great walled garden without having to build the walls. Your first photo reminds me of when we pulled out an above ground pool which had been dug into the ground and looked like a dinky die swimming pool. The previous owners and done that ( we have been here 30 years so that was a while ago). I loved it but eventually it deteriorated, the decking rotted and a new essential safety fence made it difficult to maintain so we pulled it out and as we were relocating our kitchen at the same time we filled it with all the old appliances. Really looked like a rubbish tip. There was a rock wall that had fallen down and I actually built it back up. Very proud of that .....12 hours it took but not all in one go...I am in my 60's. I think I have some photos of the new area now. I have a wrought iron swing and a lemon and lime tree. In 3 years I have had 3 lemons...waiting ,waiting, waiting!!!

That's beautiful! I love the old brick and flagstone. What a nice space, it's going to be great when it's all grown up. :)

You could not have possibly done all that unless you first planned it in your mind. Great job. We landscaped garden designers are always presented with such scenarios. You still have a lot to do.as gardening does not end but begins.

Cheers all :)Can't believe no one has thought to clear it up in over 20 years or more.

Might have a BBQ at the weekend:)

The girls from the shop came out and had a look yesterday, they brought me a load of date stamp up flower seeds :)

What an amazing transformation! Twenty years is a long time to just let things ple up like that. Gets overwhelming and then no one wants to tackle the job. I Wonder what the soil is like in the raised bed. Would be nice to have some evergreens and variegated foliage for color when the flowers aren't in bloom.

Looks like you are doing an amazing job with the yard, and I can't wait to see photos of the finished product! I would absolutely keep the tup and use it as some sort of garden art/container. I really like all the brick work on your patio.

Wow you have been busy! What a transformation, and that stone wall is lovely! (y) That's really nice about the free seeds too.

How big is the shed? Have you got any plans for it?

Don't trust the "soil" thats there for growing veg, so flowers only in that.

Putting some veg in containers that i'm filling with my own compost :)
