My new patio!

I know this isn't crafy, but I had to share this with you. We have lived with THE most awful, ugly, uneven, nasty looking patio since we moved into our house in 2000. I mean, look at the state of this....





I can't believe that I've shared this photo with you, it is totally embarrassing! Will used to mow the patio when he'd finished doing the grass!

Even our 'work in progress' looked better!



But it didn't look as good as this...




It's 5mx5m square and the hand rail just finishes it off to make it it's own space. The section in front of the conservatory is 5m x 1.5m too. It was expensive, but oh, so worth it! Can't wait for the good weather now to get out there and start enjoying our new space. We've still got to get some gravel to go round the edges and choose some new pots and plants to decorate it, but how gorgeous is this now?! I LOVE IT!!!

Next project....... sort out the horrible garden! Anyone good at garden designing want to give us some tips?

Oh Rosie that is lovely. Just pray for gorgeous summer evenings so you can enjoy it. Although if I had a patio like that I think I'd sit out there whether it was raining or not.

Wow your wish came true! Sunny weather just for you Rosie! Hope you got out there over the last couple of evenings! H xxx

Whoa, Rosie! The new patio is a HUGE improvement! The handrail was definitely a great idea. What are the patio’s tiles made of? I’m sure you’ve really enjoyed spending more time outdoors now that you’ve got a great patio and beautiful furniture to go with it!
