    Well I’m making progress. With my garden!

    This weekend I took out a flowering hedge from directly in front of my house. I want to replace it with something low to medium growing, not another hedge.

    I’m looking for something that is as low-mess as possible as the problem with the old hedge was the tiny flowers dropped off and got everywhere and ended up being tracked inside.

    Ideas?

    Do you need a hedge? could you put some picket fencing up and then add some pots and a small tree.

    A picket fence might be a lovely idea if you don't need an actual hedge :) Then any pots you have can be changed if you feel like it.
    If not a fence you could try lavender? I've only ever had it in a pot but it does make a beautiful border! Though obviously it has flowers - do you want no flowers at all?
