You know how when there?s something you really should be doing you can always find something else to do? Well I had today off work and instead of plastering and papering indoors I actually spent the day in the garden and put together a garden gate.
The old gate as you can see was falling apart and didn?t provide much security and looking around there were no suitable ready made gates that would fit the exact size I needed I got out my carpentry skills and made my own.
It?s not really an essential thing for the immediate future but I tell myself that it?s made the garden a bit more secure and also made it look a lot nicer.
I put a door lock on it so that I can gain access via the alleyway with having to worry about bolts or padlocks which are usually on back gates. Next up is to put some fencing along the back wall so that I have some nice privacy and to also put on some wood-stain to protect the wood.
I?ve also put done some purple slate scree in the flowerbeds (after weeding of course) and will put in a few plants at a later date. I really do like my garden as it?s a nice size and I can?t wait to have some BBQ fun there in the near future.
Not bad eh?
