New garden - suggestions for design please
Hi, I've only just discovered this lovely web site and would appreciate some suggestions for our new garden-we moved in during the summer and mostly spent time clearing ground elder and ivy. The picture shows the part I'm interested in.
A long red brick wall, fading limewash, curved ends, on the left hand side is a bed planted with acanthus and shrubs. On the right a walnut tree and beech hedge. The door doesn't open, it gives on to a barbed wire fence around the field behind. I'd like a hard-standing patch for a fire dish, and a water feature, but can't work out what colours/materials would look good against the brick. (Repainting the limewash is not an option.)
I think we could make something really exciting with this feature but am a bit unsure as to how. I'd love an alchemy style garden here. Growing flowers/veg not important in this area-I've got room for those elsewhere.
I'd love to hear your ideas!
