I live in a doble story grey stone, house. Boundary wall is grey stone also . I have shrubs, roses & some seasonal flowers along the boundary wall but no plantation along the other border of the lawn. Please advice me about it as it looks somewhat incomplete.
Thanks

Hi @Fazizabd
Certainly, planting another shrub/flower bed to balance the picture would be a good idea. Joining the new bed to the existing bed at one end, and using some of the same shrubs or flowers in the new bed, would create a feeling of continuity.

I agree with the idea of duplicating some (but not all) of what you have already. Three pops of color blooming at the same time draw your eye around and about nicely. Perhaps plant some smaller trees in your boundary - Japanese maples are nice and come in various shapes and leaf color. Another idea would be to add in native plants for your perimeter.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
