realy big empty garden

Help I have a huge garden 3 hectares about 7 acres , we are trying to creat a garden on about a hectare and I need advice about what to put in that will give me structure to create a garden round. I have started a willow hedge and a  laurel hedge. We have two large beds into which I am putting all the shrubs I grow from cuttings as I see what likes my acid soil on a windswept site.  We are quite high 300 metres but we live in Brittany so are a bit further south than the UK  ..

Are there any books you could recomend , everthing I have concentrates on tiny gardens and how to make them seem bigger.  


Geothermal heating and plants

We have geothermal heating  with  the captor under the lawn, we were told not to plant bushes or trees etc on the surface and not within a couple of meters in the case of trees. the captor is 80cm down.  We have left the surface as lawn  they told us not to cover it with a solid surface such as concrete or tarmac.  There does not appear to be much difference as far as the lawn is concerned. Snow lies a little longer over the captor as the heat has been removed, so would advisenot planting tender subjects.
