This week we check out Quick-Monitor Backyard Design Method Course pupil, Jude’s backyard.
The transformation blew me away, Jude has accomplished an amazing job! Right here’s the way it seemed pre-transformation…
So over to Jude to let you know concerning the backyard…
Earlier than I began the course I had made the error of planning one a part of my backyard and I had no concept the right way to hyperlink it with the remainder. Along with this, the backyard wraps round our dwelling which made it much more daunting!
It was an unloved backyard which we had moved to the yr earlier than – the primary yr was spent taking out large conifers and an overgrown laurel hedge (contained in the conifer boundary). The conifers dominated the small quantity of house we did have (it’s not a large backyard!) and took out plenty of sunshine.
Your course gave me the boldness to get began and your philosophy of wanting on the house first made all of the distinction to me. I wished comfortable curves and no straight strains as the home is an older-styled 70’s constructing plus I wished it to be wildlife pleasant however with out the good thing about your programs I actually didn’t know the place to even begin.
8 months after your course and I have simply completed doing the laborious half with some assist from our handyman gardener/pal (all of the laborious landscaping). I’m largely planted up now, the turf went down 2 weeks in the past and I simply have to get some extra evergreens in place for year-round curiosity and kind.
There are just a few extra bits deliberate – wild meadow turf or woodland planting across the aspect of the home alongside just a little wildlife-friendly water characteristic/pond, however I’m virtually there!
I’ve connected just a few pictures of my plan, the unique backyard because it was once I began and the tip consequence. I do know that there’ll in all probability be issues that you’d have accomplished in another way however I’m very happy with the outcomes…a lot in order that I’m now contemplating tackling my entrance backyard!
As soon as once more thanks – with out your programs I might by no means have had the braveness or conviction to design it myself.

It’s a backyard any skilled backyard designer could be pleased with so I’m glad you’re happy with what you’ve accomplished, so you ought to be!
