Keyhole Garden

 

I re-designed this part of my garden in April 2014.  It was originally all lawn, with a small patio area.  I was keen to make the lawned area smaller as the garden has a dwarf wall on 3 sides and this involved a lot of strimming.  I also wanted to postion the circle of lawn in the sunniest part.  I used up quite a lot paint spray marking out where the sun was throughout the day. The main circle I wanted to be manicured and the other area which is slightly boggy from a natural spring I have allowed the grass to grow longer and have planted lots of bulbs to create a more natural feel.
