What´s that in the middle of the lawn? A lamp? Think of a lamp post (before you
returf!) with handles (or what-do-you-call-them) to hang baskets. It would add
seasonal colour without having to mess with the lawn scheme. No need to
place the post in the middle; a little to the side of the gate would add charm.
You could also plant a small bunch of low flowers to fit around or ahead of the
Fairy Girl´s hint at gathering the pots is excellent: oppose them to the shrub, in
a corner. If you can, add pots of different heights and widths, though of the same
Hedges are such a bore! Imagine airy bushy shrubs like Daphne, Escallonia,
Kerria that will do the job well, let the air and light in, and attract bees galore.
Whatever you do, do with love and everything will suit well.
