I'm doing a garden course and am trying to redesign in front of my house which is a very wide but narrow / shallow area - (24m long by 6m wide) already split into 3 areas all about 6m in depth from the house to the front wall. Friends suggested I look at similar garden images to get ideas but I don't see many about... Any ideas where I can look or does anyone have a wide shallow garden to give me ideas? I've posted some of my pictures to explain what I mean if that will help.
Left side of front garden in gravel (west facing) - planted with grasses, perennials that like good drainage and spring bulbs
Middle of front garden all to gravel with higgledy-piggledy tubs at the moment... In shade most of the day though South facing.
Other side border East facing mainly shrubs and trees with some perennials and spring bulbs...
A view to the house from the driveway gate showing the main area I'm trying to redesign.
Amy ideas to get me started would be a help - I've measured up and put my measurements on paper so far and have come up with a first idea for my draft plan... see below
