    I am planning to remove the hegdes from behind the cherry tree in the pot (first picture) to the light coloured conifer in the hedges (second picture).
    You can see the pheasent berry bush/tree in the second picture, I plan to use it to hide the ugly brown untill I can get a couple little conifers to grow and cover it. It will give us about 4x12 feet or so more room.
    So what do you think??

    More room in a garden is always good.

    *calculating* Oh, yes, I'd absolutely do that! A few more square meters to play on is always welcome. :)

    Oh my imagination is running wild!! What are you thinking of planting in the space you'll have to play with? Something evergreen, bulbs ,herbs, small shrubs or are you going to put in a garden ornament? I have no space left in my own garden so look forward to seeing the area you'll have and what you fill it with. I must admit I'm a little green with envy as I would love a bit of space to tinker with.

    I'd love to be there with you when you select your plants but somehow I think we'd end up with way to many as I'm a self-confessed plantaholic!! :D :D
