The borders are just what I dug out as they stood. My intentions are to widen them and curve around the corners, but fill in the square; either with bought turf or transplant that I lift to widen the borders.
I want the box to grow to about 50-70cm. Then maybe in front of them/bottom of them (on road side), have a "carpet" plant/flower, although no idea what and no idea when to do it.
I have bags of bark/mulch to cover the beds, but not had time to dig them yet and thought if I transplant the turf, now might not be a good time. So might just put bark around tree base and box base for now.
I've been petrified of cocking it up so took a long while to decide to buy and then to plant! But someone on here said slowly, slowly is way to go...
