Hi, after posting on the introduction I thought I would come here to hopefully gain some ideas and knowledge.
I am wanting to give my garden a Japanese "feel" whilst still maintaining a English garden essence. Hope that makes sense.
I am a very new gardener but I fell in love Japanese Maples whilst perusing a mail order gardening brochure so went to a few local garden centers and I now have 2 Acers: A small Garnet (about 1 foot high) and an "Orangeola" which is around 5ft high.
My garden, as you can see is quite awkward and I have little to work with.
I have put bamboo edging down the side of the beds and have bought two Japanese Azaleas which you see on the small wall which will hopefully flower this summer.
Basically, aside from buying a couple of little Buddas, what can I do to give a more Japanese feel?
I am looking for plant ideas, as the two beds along eitherside of the lawn are basically blank apart from a few tulip bulbs I planted to flower this spring, and anything else you can throw at me.
Hope you can help.
