    Here's you chance to have a look at the garden featured in the show.

    These pictures show the garden in its current state. Each month we'll add more pictures to show you how the transformation of the garden is progressing.

    dry stone wall.
    This is the area of the garden at the front of the house next to Janet's dry stone wall. The team have big plans for this area hoping to transform it from a rough rubble strewn piece of the garden to a colourful showpiece to welcome visitors to the house.

    This is Janet's lawn and as you can see it does need some help!

    The conifers that form an L shape in the corner of Janet's garden will need regular attention and Jason plans to create borders at the front of them.

    This area has been designated as somewhere quiet and peaceful. Janet's family have buried pets here and the plan is to turn the corner of the garden into a secluded seating area.

    Gardne Blocks.
    After some construction on the house the bare breeze blocks are fairly ugly and this whole area caused a cry of HELP! Jason will be transforming this part of the garden into a more attractive proposition.

    Not the best of sights as you enter the vegetable plot. These nettles won't stay for long!

    The wind seems to have caused Janet's runner beans a few problems!

    Vegetable Plot.
    Yes - it is the vegetable plot - under there somewhere!

    Vegetable Plot.
    The vegetable plot will be a major focus of our Diary.


    Don't forget to come back soon and see how the garden is coming along!
