We want to use our side door as we farm and tend to be mucky! The problem is our dogs and children also use that side of the garden. I want to put a garden gate up to prevent escapees but my husband just wants to walk straight into the house and not deal with gates etc. How do we keep the garden secure without a gate?
I have a wall at chest level height at the side of my house that gives people full view of my whole house & garden. I need to block this view fully. I know it will be expensive but I want looking for shrubs that are unusual & fragrant or something that looks beautiful & will grow to approx 2 meters. It would have to be evergreen. I live in a coastal area in Tramore. I would appreciate your suggestions.
I don't know if you can help have found a large amount of frogspawn on the side of the road and it is out in the open with no water any advice would help.
Are there any disadvantages to using a stone / slate or gravel mulch on beds to stop weeds.
Unusually for housing estate have small triangle of grass between footpath and garden wall. Not sure of ownership but trying to check with council. With advancing years have removed grass from front and back garden, leaving this as only tiny patch requiring mowing and ownership of law mower. Thinking Mypex, and trailing plants, biggest problem is slope making mulch or chippings difficult to keep in place. Suggestions of plants etc.
