Hi folks,

Im new to this site and honestly, quite new to gardening!! My wife and I bought our house with an already mature but quite badly kept garden, which we are slowly trying to bring into some kind of order! Weve recently removed an old arbour/seat from a corner of the garden and replaced it with a 7ft hexagonal gazebo/summer house, and as you will see from the photos weve mounted it quite high to allow for a step at the front. At the minute we are seeking some inspiration for what to do to 'fill-out' the gap at each the side of the gazebo, initial thoughts were to create a sloping rock garden using some rocks I found lying around, but being honest I have no clue about plant selection!!

Ideally we would like something which will create an inviting area in the corner with plenty of colour but I am open to suggestions . The area itself gets the sun in the late afternoon/evening but would be reasonably shaded during the day. Any photos would be great!!!

Hi GW.I'm no expert- there are much better gardeners on here than me. I would think that a flowerbed with anything that grows high enough would grow up beside it. I like your idea of rocks but have no idea of what to suggest to plant in it.
