Any idea's please

Can anyone give me some ideas as to what i could do with this on our estate. It's in the middle of a big green and has been let go.I'm hoping the residence committee will let me do something with it to make it nicer.

I'd like to plant stuff that is low maintenance and nice to look at.

    Do you want a natural look or more formal? image

    Oh, I'd love to plant a group of multi-stemmed silver birch right on the top, then under-plant with spring bulbs, primroses and cowslips; then some Cyclamen hederifolium for the autumn

    That way it could still be mowed a few times a year and kept neat, but it would look fantastic image

    Open to suggestions Rebecca, they paid a lot of money to get that done a couple of years ago only for some not so nice kids to come along and ruin it,smashed everything that was planted. Lucky the kids are gone now and I'd like to try do something with it.

    nice idea Dove,think I'd take the grass off it though as It's hard to get the main area mowed never mind this bit.lol

    If vandlels are a possibility id probably go for some lovely big grasses, verbena boneriensis, rudbeckia etc, reletively cheap, fairly resilient, and can be replaced or added to next year if nothing happens to it this year. I really like Doves idea,but it would be heart breaking and expensive if it got trashed image

    If vandals might be a problem, plant it up with Rubus cockburnianus 'Golden Vale' - that'd teach them 'consequences' image

    Nothing to say on the subject, just wondering whether COYS, represents a certain football team, I do hope so.
