New House Garden
Hi, we moved into our new house last summer and are looking for inspiration in the garden. Other than maintaining it and digging a border down the left hand side we thought it best to see what comes up in spring before any major planting is done. The garden is south facing.
As you can see the garden is kind of half populated, the back and the right hand side look ‘ok’ and have some good established plants already in, across the back fence is ivy and a honeysuckle which I think we will keep and stay on top of, there is a couple of hydrangeas, euonymus, a mahonia of sort, a red robin and a couple of box privets. Down the right hand side is a large ceanothus which is amazing when in flower, a cotoneaster and a pyracantha. We aim to keep all the plants in and add others that would enhance the look, maybe introduce some plants to make it more cottage garden / wildlife friendly. (lavender, poppies, lupins, foxgloves etc.)
The left hand side we were thinking of a Mediterranean (tropical) / beach theme. Well my wife is but I am unsure how this would work and what type of plants we would use.
Any recommendations for plants we could use on all sides or inspiration on what we can do with the garden itself?
