hi ks
looks stunning and you can see the effort put in .nice colours and shapes.
not wishing to sound negative there is little chance of wildlife settling in there due to the manicuring but appreciate the effort and i wouldnt complain if i opened the blinds in the morning and saw that view

I love my garden but to me spending 8 hours a day gardening is not a pleasure. As you say not much room for wildlife if they are manicuring the garden all the time.

8 hrs a day is actually 16hrs a day if the pair of themn are working on it. Hafta say he looks in grand shape himself though for 62. So maybe he is doing somethiong right? Would ya look at the "unassuming" house though. That little shed is unassuming enough to be worth £1M even in Walsall even in these straitened times. But boy what an autumn garden?
