Garden help/recommendations needed

Margot Etgar

Recommended Posts


We recently moved to a victorian conversion flat by Brunswick Park (Camberwell) and have a potentially very lovely back garden that needs some assistance. Essentially, there is currently gravel in the centre, a greenhouse which we would like to sell, and a slippery wooden deck. While we're very keen on planting in the side edges on our own, with a toddler we simply don't have time for the rest: laying a (hopefully stone) terrasse, exchanging the gravel for grass, removing the concrete foundation of the greenhouse, removing the wonky back wall (wood), and possibly erect a brick wall instead. So, a pretty full-on project but with no planting/planning needed(except for laying grass). The area is approximately 40sqm.

I am very interested in hearing recommendations/offers from anyone who has experience in this field!

Very best whishes,

I have been gardening in the area for just over 20 years & have been on the EDF for around 15. I would be delighted to take a look at your garden & discuss what you want & create new ideas. I don?t charge for surveys & ideas & I would be happy to take you to my nursery to gather ideas for planting .

The garden looks quite shaded by the plants which maybe a problem for a new lawn, but we can take a look at possibilities of pruning, or re positioning with a survey.

Please feel free to contact me & arrange a time to come & take a look

    • This is clearly far from a unique issue. Somebody posted this on Facebook and it is so similar to posts here I asked him if he was with Tessa Jowell - he said "no, Lewisham".  "This morning on the microsecond of 8am I tried to get through to my GP on the phone...it went straight through to Hold. Tried again. Same thing. Tried a third time...Same thing. OK, I thought, I will hold. 32 minutes later, I gave up. The voice said "Did you know you can now book appointments online?" NO YOU CAN'T...I have the Patient Access App & for the past 2 years it has said "This practice is unable to book appointments online." Anyhooooo...on way back from shops I popped into the actual surgery to see if I could book an appointment in advance...that was my second mistake...Receptionist said "No. You will have to ring up on a Monday morning to see if we have any for that week" "Oh, and what time should I ring?" "It's best to ring at 8am" "But i just spent 32 minutes this morning on hold and couldn't even get through" "Yeah, sorry about that, we are short-staffed at the moment...but did you kn ow you can now book appointments in advance online?" "No, you can't" "Well, there are sometimes some appointments available online" "Nope, no there aren't...looked every day for 2 years and not a scintilla of an appointment..." "Well, you could always ring up at 8am" "You do know the whole system is completely falling to pieces?" Receptionist gives rueful look. In case I lost it and set fire to the whole fecking GP Practice there and then, I left. I will try again tomorrow morning at 8am. And see if Dr Godot will see me...We are well and truly f****d, peoples."
    • Hi, it might be too late but have you tried Discogs?  https://www.discogs.com/search/?q=can't+take+my+eyes+off+you+frankie+valli&type=all&country_exact=UK
    • Brilliant.  This is the right place As we need some support.  I will be in touch. TY
    • Long time cyclist and driver here, (but I cycle much more than drive). Sadly I'm not sure we're ever going to get over this.  The pro- and anti- camps are so polarised that compromise and acceptance seems impossible; it feels like someone has to be the winner. I had a break in Berlin recently and the attitude seems so different.  There were loads and loads of cyclists (most non-electric as far as I could tell) but everyone adhered to the rules.  Motorists and cyclists always stopped at red lights.  Pedestrians only crossed at crossings and only when the green man light was lit.  There were cycle lanes, sometimes borrowed from the road, sometimes from the pavements but always used.  What's needed is a cultural shift in mindset.
