Hiya Salino....I respect your views....seen your garden so of course I do. Yes have little private sitting area thats bit sentimental so won't photo that. Got scented and favourite stuff there "through the arch". Small pool. Veg patch, fruit area. Compost area of course. Yes maybe that size Salino.
Oakley ..not,quite as simple as that but I hate planting and replanting stuff that never matures or grows only for a season. If you choose complementary perennials, shrubs, grasses, etc that allowfor all 4 seasons they will in relatively short time enable you to spend your time "sitting in it". Got to admire your attitude Oakley
Re the grasses. ....I dig up mine every 3 years or so to keep young and compact and they are very easy then. No real total maintenance-free gardening but I think the way I do it is economical on time and money and energy.. Plus people get free plants, many of them quite classy plants, when I give away my divided ones.
