Looking for ideas
Hi all, Would appreciate any help in designing this garden as i'm stuck for ideas. It's approx 40 feet long 12 feet wide.
I have done some work already (will post updated pics when i get a chance) Against the wall which is only about 4-5 foot so not very private from neighbours, i took up a narrow strip of the concrete and planted climbers on wires against the wall in upper part of the garden. I have honeysuckle, passionflower, star jasmine and a climbing rose. They actually seem to be thriving as the garden is south west facing and gets a lot of sun.
At the lower end of the garden, i just planted red robin, portuguese laurel, choisya ternata sundance, coeuntas skylark which will take sometime to grow as they were only baby plants.
I don't like the ugly concrete path but i don't think i have the energy to remove. I may just cover it in gravel. I was also thinking of installing arches for the climbing plants to grow over for more privacy or perhaps and walkway pergola along the upper part of the path.
I'm looking for ideas of what to plant along the length of the lawn or just in general how you'd create borders in this lawn to make it more attactive? Should i try and introduce curves? There is a mature privet hedge on the other boundary which is lovely and private.
I would like to also introduce a tree but not sure what to choose.
Any ideas/inspiration welcome
