This is the photo of the patio which I hope to transform the next few months before I go on holiday.  As you can see, it has rather ugly concrete paving which have become pretty from the weeds growing in between.  My neighbour religiously pulls these out but I think they give a character to the space.  You can also see the pallets which I found outside in my street- which are now transformed into fences and will become supports for the plants.  I also found the concrete blocks in a skip and the builder was very happy for me to take them.  These act to prevent the fence from toppling in the high winds and also support the pots.
