Plants…trees! No we’re not avid gardeners..

Not quite there just yet with the landscaping obviously! But definitely something to think about. The front and side of the house will need to be tackled first given that there will be a house to demolish at the back!

And I don’t think we had envisioned we would have this much space at the front, I’m not complaining obviously but you really can’t tell, even with the visuals until you can actually see it, particularly the corner and side of the garage

Now there will be an extended drop curb at the front of the house near to our neighbours, so that visitors are able to park on our front, making it a little less busy with cars….one day when we can have visitors again that is!? And so we will have the front partially paved however the corner and some of the front definitely lends itself to abit of greenery! Very much undecided still as to whether to have a fence..brick wall…bushes for the divide from the path but thats for another post!

However we do like the idea of some evergreen plants and maybe even trees in the corner, perhaps some holly bushes too

This one looks so pretty all pruned, possibly a little too high maintenance for us! And we would probably need to start smaller given the price tag! £1500!

This one however was £300 and I love the silver tones, we could go for maybe one or two trees, some Holly and then some plants…

I’m feeling this sort of greenery and we would perhaps need to go with wood chippings rather than stones…

Another expensive one for the mix!

Loving the blue tones though but we would need to go for a smaller version given this one is a grand!

And maybe even some evergreen with the occasional seasonal colour!! As recommended by Andy’s mum

At least the ideas are in place for the front garden, so we can work on it when we get a little closer to the time…namely Spring time!

Any advice welcome!
