A garden I would like to visit too 

 

Inspiration needed.

A matching fence would be the best start Kc......welcome by the way 

in bottom corner a taxus Standishii would look good....a tough upright beautifully coloured conifer.

i would clothe those fences then with well chosen plants

it does depend n how much sun you do get in spring and summer but you can get some colour and shape there.   

I would also plant a couple of dahlias...cheap enough....to give you colour for this summer and then look around garden centres, catalogues, on line for things you like.  Ask us for suggestions about plants too

take your time but fence first Kc
