All finished, step built, just the doors to fit in a couple of weeks. Will be applying a couple of coats of deck treatment tomorrow then have 1000kg of cotswold chippings to bucket through from the front drive to go on the bed to the right ;)

Really pleased with how it turned out, will look great with the french doors fitted and some garden lighting.

I hope you have some weed control fabric to go down before the chippings.

Put weed control fabric down, bark chippings on top, looked really great.........for 2 weeks, the chippings dried out and shrunk to almost nothing, but good luck with yours.

Yes, i have heavy-duty fabric under the tub room and for the border strip, before that went down i gave it all a good dose of brushwood killer, 5ltrs in all , then the fabric, then i have enough cotswold-buff stone chippings for about a 3" layer all over, I don't like bark chips, tried them before at out last house and as you said, they shrink and ours grew mushrooms in places!

The end-plan is to gravel the bed then put two or three ornate planters on it or maybe a large metal sculpture etc (i cut metal for my home-business :wink: )

Looks smart, I like it. I also prefer stone to wood chippings.

Finally close enough to say its finished, just some mastic to run and a good clean up :)

Got all the gravel done and tidied up, looks a million times better than before and also makes the small space feel much bigger.
