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

GOOD COUCHGRASS KILLER

Posted: 15/02/2016 at 07:26

Anything with glyphosate...Roundup, etc. Lottie 

all weedkillers...all chemicals...carry a risk but glyphosate can be used to kill roots of weeds too so used once or twice will enable you to use your allotment without using weedkilllers in the future. 

The alternative is to dig couchgrass out but this is will take a lomg time to fully eradicate 

Brambles.....er roses !!

I really think this is yet another area where nobody really knows because one way is as good as the other.  I too,,as already said, have done it both ways
