Our names are Jonny and April, and we’re from Barnsley within the north of England. We just lately moved right into a brand-new property with a rectangle of grass for a backyard. Over the past 5 months now we have remodeled the backyard into the beginnings of a tropical paradise, the principle characteristic being the pondless waterfall. Neither of us had ever undertaken a backyard undertaking earlier than; nevertheless, now we have accomplished the entire work ourselves by way of using YouTube movies and on-line articles for help.
The planting is all on a tropical theme, with primarily smaller vegetation we are able to watch develop in ourselves, with a few bigger tree ferns and palms to supply some top from the outset.
The onerous work has clearly paid off, with a dramatic tropical really feel already established.
