Planning is such fun! Ideas please!

We have recently cleared an overgrown area to the left of our front path.measuring 6metres by 3 metres :rectangular. We have planted 2 trees each inside a ring of small bricks.they're a Rowan  and little plum( rescued)  I have a pile of small square edging bricks and two lovely stone planters as well as a few hydrangeas in pots.....  full sun from midmorning till sunset in.south west Scotland...lovely sandy soil.what do you think?? Would love to share some ideas.


  • Hello and welcome to the forum! It partly depends on your preference. Do you want a meadow look, or something tidy and low-maintenance? Or would it help to have two sets of ideas? Also, what is there on the other side of the path?

    I'm no expert but, if you're hoping for fruit on the plum, I think you'll need another one to go with it?

    It depends on the plum variety, many are self fertile to a greater or lesser degree
