Taking the bull by the horns we got out there on a patch of tired lawn under a gorgeous tree, and just went for it. Helped out by a trip to B&Q;'s discount bin, we got together around a dozen annuals, some shrubs and a grass, which should all grow happily into the space.Carefully removing the grass top layet, and putting down bark, have created a beautiful round border, which has caught the eyes of our neighbours.
