We had to do something to make the garden useable, we began doing area by area, and is still a work in progress...

This was the back part of the garden it when we purchased...



This was the first area turned over to gravel and decking...



This is a further development of that area...





This is the remainder of the useless pathetic boggy lawn turned over to bedding areas awaiting the grass lifting, edging sinking correctly onto barrier fabric when laid - and new gravel which is happening this weekend actually.
(Waiting just nw on 4 tonne of gravel being delivered!



This is the back garden, our lage side garden (just gravelled for now) is next to develop properly!

Oh and this is my little summer house make over made from the old rotten summerhouse which was there, shame to rip it down!

Your garden is beautiful

It's interesting to see what other people like. I have no lawn and very small patio and the rest of the garden is chocka with plants. If I had any of the gardens pictured they would come straight out!
OP you need to think on what you want, how much work ( a lawn is more work than a bed of plants) etc., we're all different in what we like.
