Garden of rented property - design advice
Last spring we moved into a rented house with a garden (my first garden!) and a separate patio area. The garden is a rectangular lawn surrounded by stake fencing and newly planted hawthorn hedging but the fencing is quite low and the hedging is not fully established yet so the garden is quite open and unsheltered.
In the Autumn I dug up an area of the lawn which was tucked into a recess of the house and put in two square metre raised beds as well as a flower bed and a small rock garden for alpines but the main garden is still just an expanse of lawn with little of interest. I am planning on increasing the width of the borders around the garden where the hedges are planted in order to be able to plant some flowers, etc, but don't want to dig up anywhere else on the lawn as it's not mine! Has anyone got any advice about what I can do to add interest to a rented garden which will have to remain predominantly lawn?
Sorry for the long post!
