Avril Maria's Profile

Where I live: Killenard, Co Laois Member since: March 2011 Last here: 1698 days 11 hours ago
About my garden: We live in a development of 50 houses where each plot has approximately a third of an acre for house and garden. A handy small site but way bigger than what I've been used to. The front garden is surrounded by a replica Georgian white wrought iron fence which is accompanied by a hedge of Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin' which we keep at 6ft high. We are very exposed as we are sitting on the side of a hill. And in the Summer there is always a cutting lazy wind. Spring/Autumn we get a lot of frost/fog. The ground is compacted heavy clay. I'm happy with the front garden and my trees/shrubs. The 2m sides walls leading to the back garden are covered in Red/Orange Pyracantha (which I love) and Virginnia Creeper. Now the back garden project starts! Nothing massively interesting to anyone else but me. I hope to develop my skills from here on in.
More about me: I moved to the village of Killenard 5 years ago from Dublin with the hubby and two boys. Settled here nicely now. Finally, planted a back garden and put in a pond which I hope to enjoy next Summer. The fish are inside waiting anxiously for relocation when the weather gets warmer and some aquatic plants go in.
