Hello

i have just created a large border and bed as per attached photo and wondered if anyone out there would like to offer me any ideas on a planting plan before I go ahead and out the wrong things everywhere. The length along fence is 20' / 6m and width as max point is 12' / 3.6m. 

The fence faces north north west.

the wall at highest point is 2ft / 600mm

I have planted some very small alpines as you can see against wall and there is a variegated jasmine type plant against wall that will have trellis put up at weekend.

I am looking for a colourful perennial border and have the patience to know it won't look packed for a few years .

 

all ideas welcome

 

thanks 

Decking lighting spacing

Hi

any opinions on the spacing required for decking lights please, I a sure it's very subjective anyway, deck is rear of house 10.5m wide x 3m deep, slats running away from house on the 3 m dimension.

i was thinking of approx 850mm spacing but does anyone feel that's too spaced out.  I am looking at the low voltage lights approx 50 quid for 10 

thanks

Thanks for that feedback, will give it a haircut. Bearing in mind I intend to construct my deck around it the general consensus would be it will become a more attractive sight now it has some space and light again.  

Thanks

Hello

i have a tree that I don't know firstly what it is secondly if it's dead or not! can someone help please.

It has been until the last week very overlooked and cramped by a next door neighbours tree hanging over into my garden but that has now been removed giving it space and light. I am about to build a garden deck and had intended to build around this tree anod leave it as a feature hoping its half dead look would go and it could become quite attractive.

 

i have shown some photos below of it to help including a close up of leaf and what appear like catkins.

 

hope someone can identify

 

thanks
