Ideas for boring overlooked garden please!
Hi - I'm new on here and just looking for advice for our back garden. We had it dug out a couple of years ago to create a patio and seating area, but have no idea what to do with the top level, which is just grass. We are overlooked by several houses so want to try to address that, so have researched ideas and think screening trees might be the best option, unless anyone can suggest any other ideas. If we do that, I'm not sure whether to plant a row of the same evergreen trees (maybe laurel or red robin) along the white wall, or vary it with different trees and maybe bamboo. We need a large garden shed as have no garage or loft, but obviously it needs hiding! I also feel we need to inject some colour into some areas but I do like quite a minimalist style, not cottage garden styles. The garden faces south west and is very sunny. We live in Devon, so have red soil. I also am a very inexperienced gardener, but keen to learn! Thank you so much for any advice you're able to offer.
