hampshire, United Kingdom
the plot of land to the right of our garden has just obtained planning permission for a chalet type dwelling , more or less in line with our back garden. so we have decided to plant a privett hedge up against the fence and grow it about 2 feet higher than the top of this fence , to obtain more privacy.
this will mean removing most plants , planting the hedge and then redesigning this area and replanting/ restocking as neccessary. all to be done next spring.
the old cherry tree will be dug out and another tree planted a bit forward to allow for the hedge. do you think a herbacious type border will work here , or would you recommend a total change. we like the 'cottage garden' look, but would love to hear your ideas , so we can get this area planned . .....steve
