Our neighbours have just redone their fence which means we can at last plant something in our border. The border is 40m long, and is planted for the first 20m with mahonia, lilac, bluebells, ribes, crocosmia, the second half of the flowerbed is empty pretty much. It is south facing, on sandy soil, light shade and goes to the entrance of a woody area. The border is only 1m20 deep getting only to 2m just before the wood. I have a herbaceous border the other side of path
Should I be looking to put a few more shrubs in and then some perennials inbetween or do a solid bank of something ? Grasses, agapanthus ?
I'm trying to get some inspiration, any ideas out there. The garden has a fairly 'natural' feel currently due to previous owners, but would like to try and get it a little more manicured if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help.
