Thanks for all your thoughts, the pipe is only about six inches under the surface and I know I will have to go over it at some point so I'm abit concerned about that. I bought the house (because I fell in love with it) but also I wanted to be able to have an amazing garden... I just don't know how yet but am willing to work hard and learn as much as I can I'm thinking hedging already because I'd rather a living boundary so that's where I'm starting my ideas for what I want and where, but with the pipe issue I didn't know what I could use, I shall have a look at your suggestions thanks busy lizzie!

Hi all, you can't see the house from the garden and vice versa, I have a tiny cottage and the garden is a dog leg at the back and runs along a farmers field, the shed you can see on the top pic is the farmers shed, that is the end of my garden and there are pigs in the field directly at the end. where the big trees are is the farmers field and they do give shade, but my dogs need as much shade as they can get in the summer so I'm keeping them, I have had them trimmed back and even tho I would prefer prettier trees if I had the choice I have work with what I have.along the left in the top pic are the neighbours hedges,I think I need to make the garden more interesting than just the straight path that is there now, but I don't know what to do instead? I also have a sewer pipe that runs diagonally across the whole plot...great!... What would you suggest as hedging plants that would be less intrusive roots? If I want to have some snazzier lines I need to know what to use?

view from other end... I have been told by estate agent it is a plot of around a third of an acre, looks smaller than that to me tho, it is completely open to the left side with a field so don't want to spoil the view,but have no idea what will withstand the elements, I really don't know where to start apart from getting all the bark and stones up, it seems to be clay soil....help!
