Each to their own I say. I like the cottage style with lots of plants close to each other. The advantage being there's no room for weeds! But some like plants with their own little circle of earth around them, but they have to keep weeding. I like a mixture of shrubs,annuals and perennials and climbers for all seasons, with a small patch for a few veg.. There's never a time with no colour in my garden, even in the winter the various colours of the evergreens keeps me cheerful.
