More garden plans
Some crocuses I saw today inspired me to do some more garden planning. This is what the garden looks like today: More or less. Imagine the green lawn to be all yellow 20cm long grass with moss inbetween. Three red current bushes of which one doesn't carry and one is hard to reach without breaking my neck. The levels show you how steep it is. It starts with a lower patio that we lovingly call our "swimmingpool" because it is square, tiled, and humid. The only thing I grow in there is a clematis who seems to love the climate. This is what I would like it to be: Plant-wise that's easy. I want to rip out the red currant bush on the right, get rid of the shrub at the top, and limit the bamboo's ambition to world domination. Then I want a waterfall of blue down the hill. Unfortunately I can only start with the plants when the walls are done. Currently the 2nd and 3rd level are held up by wooden palisades. They need to be replaced. Then we need to get the steps up to the top. J has already built the lower steps you can see. Starting from there we need to build them up. I hope it works and they don't break apart or anything. Currently we are using the stairs on the right, but they actually belong to the neighbour. And are falling apart, too. Any idea how to improve this is more than welcome. The garden is mostly shade with only about 4 hours of direct sun in summer. Climate is mild. In winter it gets as low as -15°C once in a while, in summer it goes up to 35°C but the mean is more around 0°C to 20°C all year round.
