I live in Copenhagen, but the garden is located by our holiday home, 1h45m outside the city by public transport.
We have 1250 square meters of land, bordered by free-growing hedges with interspersed trees on three sides and a small stream at the back of the house. At present the garden is mainly lawn, surrounded by a few borders, but I plan to expand the borders and reduce the lawn while also making room for a small vegetable garden.
I have very little gardening experience, but I grew up in a house with a garden and I seem to have picked up a bit of knowledge through my childhood, so it doesn’t seem to be entirely new territory.
Many of the plants in our garden were there when we bought the summer house, but we have added a few ourselves, both purchased plants and plants inherited from my parents, my grandmother and my husband’s grandparents’ allotment.
