Picture this 50's ex-council house in tiny rural village. Majority of garden at the front of house. Stood on road looking at my house the drive is Tarmac type and runs full length to the house on the left. The right is all lawn. One circular flower bed in the middle, a newly cut bed infront of the house and a tiny tiny corner bed on the very edge of the grass where you pull on to the drive. My partner really wants veg at the front but with low fences and open frontage how do we make this look attractive even in bleak months. The soil is terribly heavy clay and no hope of turning it, so we would have to think of raised beds. Any ideas suggestions or pictures, also has anyone done this, any ideas on cost!?
