Bay window planting and wall climber
After my previous discussion about landscaping my driveway I spoke to the council and ended up having to rethink my plans. In order to meet the hardstanding width requirements I have to settle for a fence as a divider.
This however gives me an opportunity to utilise other spaces in my front garden such as under my windows and the wall above them. It faces north-east so what could I grow in containers? I could break up the slabs in the outlined area which gives me a 2 ft width but ideally I'd like to avoid harder work!
The under-window height is about 2-3 ft so something(s) to grow up to that is ideal. Perhaps something scented so its fragrance wafts in when the windows are open in summer and/or something for the sparrows too
My wall has been re-rendered and what was previously a lovely white is now a dull grey so I'd like to grow a climber on it via a trellis or wires. This would either be in a container or directly in the ground. First choice is pyracantha as it's evergreen and has lovely berries. Star jasmine is another contender but I'm not so sure it will flower much due to the aspect. What else could fit?
I've had a look at the Ealing Front Gardens Project for some inspiration too.
Reckon it's possible to cover up all the grey bits around the windows including the top ones?
