Absolute Amateur - Garden Border
Hi all! This is my first post here so please be nice
We moved into our first place almost a year ago and the front of the house is looking a little drab. As I say in the title, I am a complete amateur but keen to get my hands dirty - but at the moment my gardening skills are limited to cutting the grass and a little landscaping, building decking etc.
Here is the front of our house at present!
We hate the border in front of the window and want to swap it out for something fuller and better looking, and then to the right of the path there's just a couple of random plants so we'd want to swap them out for something to match whatever we put on the left.
We like the look of set ups like this (image below) with evergreens but some color in as well, and preferably low-ish maintenance with minimal chopping and weeding, we just don't know where to begin. For starters we don't even know the names of plants! (Honestly we're useless, but we all got to start somewhere!)
Can anyone help, please! Maybe if someone can label image above with what the plants are called, and what plants work well with it, and how far apart we should plant them, and the soil type they need, and anything else you think we need to know.
Orrr if anyone has any suggestions for what we could do to spruce the front up a little we're happy to hear them! I'd been looking at gardenonaroll but the reviews are fairly mixed and the prices are a little steep for what they're offering.
Sorry for the long post!
I look forward to your responses
