Hey everyone!! I'm finally following in my old nan's footsteps and developing green fingers now I have a little patch of my own garden (and more importantly a shed!) to play withI've moved in April and I've spent the summer eradicating mosstand saving the lawn (it's getting there) but my bed project is the eastern border!!
The 1x7m area in my picture is to the east of the garden (it's directly south-facing) and I'm torn between extending the lawn a bit so the little'un has more room to play or doing something more creative...as a bit of an amateur, I'd love some suggestions!!
There'a a small wire fence to use if I was going to train something but I'd prefer to cover it up with something perennial/evergreen (someone has suggested laurel?) with maybe something prettier growing underneath. was whole area was riddled with ivy before (which I'm on the last stages of ridding - taken months) and an amalgam of random messy small shrubs (all gone now). The wooden fence behind is next-door's, so I'd rather not encroach on that.
So, any suggestions or similar projects anyone has done would be awesome! Also any advice on pre-treating the area given the above history of it, location and the fact it's already September so the summer is getting on...!!
Thanks in advance!!
