Thanks guys i'll have a trawl through and see what I like. This is the area Fairygirl, it's on the west side of the house which does get light but shady later on due to houses on that side.


you can see the bareish patch in the middle where nothing seems to take and the heather (I think it's that)

Grape vine

Am I correct in thinking that pruning now is too late? Another question is do I need to prune or can I just tie back the straggly bits?

Ca I have some suggestions for plant which will grow on a steep bank, need to be low maintenance but provide good ground cover/spread. The soil is dry and stony and at the moment only has moss growing on it. There is a heather which is doing well but not spreading so what do people suggest?

Thanks for all the responses I agree about the hard landscaping but am willing to do as much as possible by hand but do need to keep the costs down, there are so many areas in garden that need attention but of various types as they are all different, really don't want low maintenace as find most quite boring so looking for something different and willing to put in the work. Was considering putting trees at the bottom some type of fruit to give a bit of privacy as well.

Have just moved into a lovely bungalow with a very unfortunately sad looking garden, there are aspects which are beautiful and have some nice terraces but there are two areas I'm not sure what to do with.

I have attached a few photos and would very much appreciate peoples input, looking to do this on a very small budget as I'm a student at present but very handy with tools and at presenting i'm studying towards a civil engineering degree so hard landscaping isn't an issue. The issue is ideas for the front bank with the winding path and rear bank surrounded by Hazel trees.
