Hi everyone, please allow me to pick your brains. I have no background of horticulture what so ever and have no family members with knowlede either. Having moved into our own home with a large garden after spening 23 years in military accomodation with nothing is somewhat daunting. We moved in 3 years ago and what was there was very run down, so basically just cleared all the weeds and re seeded a new lawn. this took great and the following year i put in a small border near to the house, and this looks good to, then last year I did the same with the long borders and have started to plant this out, problem is it just looks like a large piece of grass with a few plants around the edge! What can I do to soften it and make it into an interesting garden? I'm scared that I will ruin the new lawn, put plants in the wrong place etc etc etc.....god I so wish I have a fairy garden mother that could fly over and give me some advice and guidance. Any ideas folk?
