What can I do with my small patio garden?!
Hi. I live in London and am lucky enough to have a small 30m sq patio garden. I am a relative novice gardener but I have been inspired to improve what we have after pressure washing the muck off the patio and realising we could create something nice and usable. The space is ~ 25m sq of paved stone which is edged by thin soil beds. To the side is a communal area that we have filled with pebbles. I am not sure what to do to improve this area. We are limited by the large climbing tree that looks nice but blocks a lot of light out, therefore I am not sure what i can do with the shady space. So i guess my options are to get rid of the soil which can be quite messy when there are no plants in the beds? Or plant some shade loving plants?
Any suggestions welcome! Thanks.
