oh goodness - right i will get on with the science experiment tonight - thanks for the tips. my neighbours have beautiful gardens. puts me to shame!

i dont really want plants etc at the front though - something low maintenance - maybe a design with gravel/stones?

Well the hedge on the left is shared with our neighbour who i think prefers to keep it high. The one in front and on the right is ours - they used to be just as high but we took them down because it felt v claustrophobic!

 

Thanks,

Wow - am stunned with the detailed responses here. Some really helpful feedback , thank you. See pic attached - it's atrocious! top left corner there are a pile of rocks (for some odd reason - i dont know what the previous owners had in mind) - with weeds growing out of them.

Fairy girl - yes I'd definitely want something simple that doesn't need a huge amount of maintenance. which soil are you talking about at the back addict?

 

Thanks everyone

You seem like a gardening expert - am just a beginner! i will send a picture through soon. My budget isn't very big - i didn't even consider letting the lawn go! It's an idea i guess but i wouldn't know where to start. I don't know what type of soil we have either.

Since you're an addict...at the back we have paving slabs...but weeds grow between them ALL the time - they all have gaps between them.(very narrow gaps). any suggestions for closing those off?

 

Thanks

Hello there, just joined the forum!

I have a front lawn in front of the house with hedges on either side and in front - basically surrounding the house. it is so plain and dull - i need some inspiration! what on earth can i do with a plain lawn surrounded by nothing but hedges!?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
