Ideas for a 2 Meter Wide Planter Box

The garden gets the sun all morning up until about 13:00hrs when it moves over the back garden.  It is quite exposed.

Some great ideas there, thank you.  I forgot how nice lavender looks especially in a planter.  Just have to wait for the rain to stop now...

When it comes to gardening experience, I am very good with hard landscaping but put my hands up to say I know next to nothing when it comes to finishing off the project with flowers and plants.

I have a very bare looking frontage to my house, as I have a large cobble block drive with no grass or planting area.  Looks pretty dull and like a car park.  Great if you want to park cars but no so great when you are trying to sell a house.

I have just purchased a rather large 2 meter long by 40cm deep and 40cm wide planter.  It is huge and I really need some advice as to what to put in it.  I am looking to have some hardy greenery mixed with some bright plants.  I have put some pansies in hanging baskets, but the focal point will be this planter.  Any advice on this subject would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks

Some advice needed to brighten up the front of my house where I currently have no greenery, just a cobbled driveway
