Thanks Matt--I love my gardening, even if it is a recent passion. : )

I can confirm that the liquid clay breakers are great.
Between the clay breaker, some mushroom compost and sheep manure, some of my plants are doing brilliantly. Have had a couple die but that was my fault not planting them properly.
I agree that it's all about good plant selection
The pavers are coming ... eventually!

I have checked, the claybreaker I use is by Multicrop:
It's the first one on that page.
You can buy the stuff in hose-on packs, but every time I've ever bought a hose-on pack of anything I've wound up with lots and lots of water all over the garden and a full bottle still in my hand--in other words, it's never worked for me! I just mix it up in a watering can.
One thing I also swear by is a seaweed concentrate, like Seasol, at planting time to reduce stress. Doesn't matter what kind of plant, a dose of seaweed concentrate will do it good.
If anyone's interested, I'd be happy to post what I reckon is a pretty foolproof guide to planting any plant; a technique I've developed over four years of learning (sometimes the hard way!) about what works and what doesn't.

You're the best cynarion/mike!
And for the record - I would like to spend as little time as possible maintaining my so called garden! But am prepared to do my fair share of due diligence.

Have you considered Dark Colors for the first floor (the ones above the garage) - it could help highlight the fascade. I would also encourage you to consider Large Glass…
