ideas for front garden please?
I like the idea of an easily maintained garden, and want something with a very modern look. At the moment i have lawn with a boarder on one side, but i want to get rid of all the lawn and gravel the whole of the front garden instead. Both my husband and myself are not keen garderners and because we both work full time, we have not got the energy to keep up high maintenance. we have a section that lies underneath the front widow that is just soil, so i have decided to put pots either side, and not gravel that part as i think that the garden may require at least some colour. is there anything else that i could put into the soil inbetween pots to add colour, ground cover plants for e.g? and could you suggest anything else that would break up the gravel look(a centre peice of some kind for e.g) dont really want flowers or plants, just want to stick to plants under the window inbetween pots. do you know of any sites that shows you ideas on mainly gravelled front gardens? so, in a nutshell, easy maintained front garden, modern looking with just a hint of colour. not asking for much am i!!!! hope you can help. Thank you.
