Garden Discovery

Around the weeping ash lawn is a long, deep border with established trees, shrubs, perennials and much more. This has been in place for coming on 10 years so now we are discovering plants at the rear of the border coming into flower, that have huge bushes hiding them. This is going to be a focal point of change in the Autumn, as one of the underlying problems on a border this size is that you need not just one perrenial, but maybe 7-9 to create a carpet effect in one area, or bushes that once they stop flowering, something right next to it starts to fill in the gap. This is what i believe anyway !!!

I must apologise again but the pictures here are taken from early Spring. Guess i am gonna have to start snapping some photos. Too give you some idea from where the house is situated, the front garden is south facing, the Weeping Ash lawn is at the rear of the house so is north facing and the Wall garden borders it. To the west is where the garden pans out as you can see from my profile picture. This looks on to the column garden, with an interesting array of plants and shrubs, much that has been there for a few years at least.

In the second pic you can see the pergola in the background which runs the length of the garden, fantastically showing off roses, wysteria, and laburnum in the flowering season.

The pergola then finishes pretty much at the top between the veg patch and the fruit cage, facing a small pond between a shed and a greenhouse…

GUYS!!! I love this place !?!

Your garden looks serene and peaceful, inviting and so colourful. Lovely, you are so lucky. I love the Greek (?) pillars, they really make a statement.
