Hi from Northern Ireland
« on: August 02, 2011, 05:35:02 AM »
Hi all, I just joined the forum so a big hello to you all! My interest in gardening in general began at a young age and has developed into a near obsession for the last 10 years! (I'm 33). I have been working on my own Japanese style garden for the last 5 after visiting another private garden, I new I wanted a garden like that! It has had a complete re-vamp and design at the start of the season complete with an outbuilding containing Koi. I hope to learn a lot from the forum members and continue to improve my garden.

Hello young man and welcome to the forum.  We would love to see photos of your garden and I am sure just going through our old posts you will find a wealth of knowledge. 

I bet you have a few maples in your garden, I love them too!

Again welcome aboard,
