I love stones and rocks.
Well-designed. :o)
Have you put any membrane underneath the stones ?

Looking good Lindak.....yes me too..TT, this spring I am hoping for more pebbles and less concrete!

there is a membrane under the stones, but the subsoil is thick with stones and very clay. I want to try to find a larger peice of driftwood so thought I'd keep an eye on the river as it gets put to one side sometimes when they clean where the water comes over the wier. I have tried to keep a colour scheme and have chosen plants that have red in. some of the pots near the bungalow have ferns and hostas in and when they come up I will be able to see the colours of the leaves and put them in height order into the bed dug out along the side that has nothing in at the moment. It had periwinkle in and we are waiting to see if any grows again to be able to kill it before planting up in the late Spring.

The bit of lawn left needs a lot of TLC as there is a lot of moss in it and it's undulating so have to flatten the lumps off. I will fork it over then scrape at it in late march also put down some sand and compost with grass seed in. Is it possible to get the seed started in a bag with damp compost in? Just a thought. Does anyone know.

You design ideas are good.
It will be interesting to see another photo when you've done more planting and found driftwood.
Were you tempted to lose the lawn completely ?

No because I like the bit of greenery. I might try and get some clover seeds or a clump from someone else's garden to put into the lawn as the bees like it.
