Hi new to the forum and looking for design ideas

Just an update I took yesterday of my raised bed. A variety of plants in it not sure of the names of most as I didn't keep labels. I'm happy with it and will see how it does this summer and then move a few around if needed once flowered.

Thanks for the advice.

No they haven't flowered yet, bought it in Lidl  last month while shopping.

So it's ok to leave it alone and do it's thing.

I keep cutting out the bad ones but the next day more have gone the same.


Any idea's please

Ha Ha ,the kids were seen snapping the last lot but was to late to do anything at that time. Them kids have now moved so it would be a good time to get onto it so it has a chance to establish.

A landscape gardener did it last time so I'm sure he'd be up for it but the money is not there this time to pay to get it redone by him and I have to look out at it everyday and was hoping to get it looking nice. It wouldn't be my money it will come from money collected from the whole estate.

Any idea's please

I've been given the ok to try do something with this area so anymore ideas would be appreciated.

I like the idea of the multi stemmed birch for the top but I'd like to get rid of the grass/weeds as it's hard to cut. I was thinking of a mix of shrubs,perennials and spring bulbs. It bang in the middle off a big green area so will be seen by house all around.

Budget will be small so will be doing it bit at a time.

Any idea's please

Any idea's please

nice idea Dove,think I'd take the grass off it though as It's hard to get the main area mowed never mind this

Any idea's please

Open to suggestions Rebecca, they paid a lot of money to get that done a couple of years ago only for some not so nice kids to come along and ruin it,smashed everything that was planted. Lucky the kids are gone now and I'd like to try do something with it.

Any idea's please

Can anyone give me some ideas as to what i could do with this on our estate. It's in the middle of a big green and has been let go.I'm hoping the residence committee will let me do something with it to make it nicer.

I'd like to plant stuff that is low maintenance and nice to look at.
