We haven't really done much outside, as we've been focussing on having somewhere to live. The front garden isn't too bad - just needs a bit of pruning a few times a year.
The rear garden is another matter all together. Its about a 1/4 acre of jungle, on a 45 degree slope. We were prompted to make a start by a neighbour who popped round one morning to let us know a tree branch had fallen in the night, taking out most of their yard, including the chicken coop.
So spent a day clearing that back onto our side, and then had a chap come and drop another couple of trees, so we can build a deck. It'll be much easier to do that than try and terrace everywhere. The photos won't mean much as its hard to get orientated, but they should hopefully show the vibe of the thing.
The section of garden that will have the deck is nearer to our house
