Catching up! much later than expected due to web/internet problems - blame the hot weather !
My proposed new border, still in the ideas stage. Photo below shows straight edged lawn from pond to shrubs, my idea is to curve the lawn from about halfway to give a deep border in front of the shrubs (which are due for pruning)
this curve would give more depth to the bark covered area underplanted with muscari, crocus etc. and link with a smaller bed (photo to come)
As the garden is wider than long I think the curve would draw the eye towards the pond area and not just the immediate shrubbery.
Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated as I have nurtured the lawn and feel awful about digging some, well a lot of it , up.
