I'm fortunate enough to have a a rather large Polytunnel - 45ft x 14ft to be exact - and while it has helped me grow veggies and plants I would otherwise be unable to, the outside area kinda sucks if I'm being honest.
It's a mish mash of areas, some that were made before the polytunnel was even an idea and others since it's been erected and although each area does the job it was designed for none of them flow together and it's bugging me - big time!
|Nothing doing here but I have plans afoot!|
Something like this:-

The area will also then house a 3 bay compost bin that I'll be building myself and a cold frame that I'll also be making myself.
|New recycled sleeper veg beds. These are extra deep as the ground was dug out about 1ft before filling in.|
I'm going to have to make some kind of raised walkway so that I can access the area in the winter without needing waders.
|Other side of the polytunnel - bleh!|
This whole area is smothered in coarse Marsh grass and prickly gorse bush, there is very little real grass. Next year I will grass seed the area and hope the mowing will control the Marsh grass, the Gorse and maybe some of the Horsetail.
