My garden is long and narrow (16' x 60') with shrub borders up both sides and along the top. Alongside the left border is a curvy path and between the path the the right border is grass.
I planted it 20 years ago and because I was in a hurry to get privacy from my neighbours on both sides I planted too many shrubs, too close together and far too vigorous for such a small garden. The result is that it is now like a jungle and has become a nightmare to maintain. Now that my husband and I are retired and while we're still fit enough, we are clearing the garden and replanting it in a more low maintenance style.
I'd be grateful for advice on which shrubs, preferably evergreen and flowering, I should plant. I'd like some of them to grow to about 6 feet tall and others at the front of the borders to be about 3 feet tall.
Thanks in anticipation.
