Hi anyone who is interested, I’m looking for ideas and inspiration for what to do with this area! We moved in a few months ago and this is my first proper garden, although had an allotment for years, balcony pots etc. We had no idea this structure was even here when we bought the place, it was completely subsumed by ivy and jasmine overgrowth. This is the first area I think we can makeover properly. We’re having the old rotten trellis at the top replaced by 3ft Venetian-style fence panels (the horizontal slatted type) which will then continue along the rest of the garden wall as well. Other than that the mishmash of brickwork will stay, but we could paint the concrete blocks, to help them blend in or stand out depending on design choice! This is west facing, the garden is north facing overall but this section is far enough from the house that it gets a decent amount of sun. It’ll be a focal point from a few different angles, from the back of the house as well as planning a morning patio right opposite it. There won’t be grass in front eventually, that will become more planting. We’re in London so a pretty warm microclimate for the U.K.; the garden style I envision is eclectic; bright & colourful (jewel, rainbow colours); exotic/cottage fusion; travel/art inspired bits and pieces. I have a Pinterest plant wish list that could fill a nursery; the challenge for me will be curating things to fit spaces.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? What would you do with this?
