I know what you mean Verdun but there's two acubas! Also a Bush with fuzzy pink flowers that is in bloom for a fortnight and looks awful after that. Then there's a berberis in the wrong place. I am not after a blank canvas. I will leave some shrubs and small trees for structure -some of which I planted myself! I just don't want to work around the ones I don't like

We've lived here since the late 90s and I've really been a 'caretaker' for the plants left by previous owners. Many of them, I would never have chosen myself. The trouble is, I can't bring myself to do for them when they are in leaf or flower. I have decided that it will be easier to be ruthless with a bunch of sticks in the winter. I've put it in writing so now I'll have to do it!

Front Garden Borders -a blank canvas

Get a length of hose or similar and use it to see what shape you would like the lawn to be. You can see if you like sinuous shapes or straight edges. Whatever you decide, you will need bigger flower beds. The plants look like red hot pokers. Kniphofea(can't spell it!)
