Naked Men in My Garden

David in the garden-1

As part of Project Garden pretty much our first job was to get rid of the naked men – makes sense, right?

It seems we’re not the only ones working on the garden this year. Our neighbours have been doing the same and in doing so have replaced their shed with a new shed, all good you’d think except the new shed left a gap at the end of the garden and our view turned in to this:

And yes, I am being kind.

Preferring a little freedom from naked (ok topless but really all the same) gardeners I decided we’d need some screening.

The wall separating our gardens is gorgeous and we have a jasmine well established at that end of the garden which had lost its footing when they changed sheds. We cut back the climber and reclaimed nearly two metres of garden space.

To keep the wall exposed we used trellis and to minimise flesh exposure we added in some brush screening, doubled over, until the jasmine takes hold again. The idea of using brush was to give the end of the garden a soft, organic feel rather than use more solid fencing.


I am pleased with the outcome and although it’s not a complete barrier my garden is once again a naked-man-free zone.

Photoshop skillz learned at the school of Kitschy Coo, let’s not look too closely..

    Well! That was a post title that had me scrolling down, eager to see more! Luckily the statue did not disappoint ;) I do like a well-chiselled man!

    (The new screening is very tasteful, and it’ll look great once the plant life re-establishes itself.)
