The feeling of satisfaction must be huge now that you have the hard slog done, just maintenance and filling in gaps and pruning from now on.

Yeh its coming together nicely..planning to cut the edging when the grass has completely grown back. Might even put a pathway in!! But thats a little ambitious was thinking a nice circle paving set would be nice somewhere in the garden . Eatch this space.

I,ll hopefully put a mini rockery to the left of the circle kit bedise the entrance to the greenhouse..theres a slight elevation in the soil which would be great for imbedding some decorative stone.

See what you've started doing now? You have obviously got the bug!
That looks like a very nice idea. Just one thing about a rockery - make sure it is big enough: to look good, about 2/3 of each stone needs to be buried and they need to be carefully aligned to avoid what Geoffrey Smith called "the plumb pudding look." Also, the soil you use to fill between them needs lots of grit for drainage.
