Help with my front garden

I would use edging plants to stop any stones falling out.  Plants like aubrietia, Arabis,  helianthemum, campanula, geraniums, etc. 

i would  use gravel but not membrane.  I hate the stuff, it still allows surface weeds to anchor into it and makes future planting difficult.  

For first year or two use weed killer to control any weeds.

Dogwoods are useful.......go for red stems and you will have colour in winter.  Go for elegantissima and you will have lovely green and white leaves too in the summer.  Aurea has soft butter yellow leaves in you all year round colour
