Back yard 3

More sunshine on a May afternoon. Ropey raised bed but Great Wall.
Ghastly concrete slabs to go - replace with Staffs Blues. Is it too much to hope that these slabs are laid on top of the Blues?
Decisions over whether to remove raised beds in favour of ground level borders finished off with rope edging, or to provide some sort of cladding to cover up the awful brickwork and have plants tumbling over the edge.
Some sort of water is needed, even if it's not much more than a birdbath, but I can see a little waterfall tucked into the corner.

How has it gone since you posted this? I would make use of this raised bed if I was in your shoes.

I'm not convinced about the quality of the brickwork - certainly the wrong sort of bricks but if it's just the colour that can be disguised. I think they might fall over as soon as they're touched. I'll know soon now - counting the days (at last) until I get the keys.

In that case, demolish it and create your own thing. I didn't think of the possibility of it being unstable.
