Next up in the ‘Corner of our Home‘ series is not actually an internal room… but our garden!
We live in an area which is surrounded by trees and our garden is the proud owner of two trees under TPO (tree preservation order) which is a bloody nuisance. In the summer, we found that we rarely got any sun and when we did it was around 4pm which wasn’t really ideal.
The garden was sloping up and really unlevel with some patchy grass and a huge, rusty old trampoline in the middle of it; when the previous owner asked if we’d like to keep it, I jumped at the chance (see what I did there….) but in fact she was the one laughing as she didn’t need to get rid of the thing. It was awful and the grass underneath it had completely died from zero sunlight getting through – which sort of matched the rest of the patchy uneven grass in the garden.
The back of the garden was just a thickset row of hedges, which just added to the overall feeling of a brown, bushy, enclosed back garden.
