Hi All, I have a horrible piece of lawn at the front of the house, that is basically just moss. I cut it yesterday and it was a chore as it is wet the mower just sank into it and I ended up just wrestling with the mower and hurt my back in the process. So decision made it has to go. I was thinking that I would turn it into a herbaceous border/area at some point anyway, but that is going to happen sooner. The area is about 15 foot long by 10 foot at its widest and is triangular. The only request from my wife is that thee are some evergreens in there so that it is not completely bare during the winter. My plan is to have daffodils, forget me not, alliums, tulips in spring. Then have echinacea, Lupins, buddelia etc in summer. What I don't know is what evergreens to put in. I would like something that flower or adds interest through autumn/ winter. I am thinking about red dogwood I front of the hedge as I think the green back drop will make them stand out. Any suggestions? I am in no rush to do the project, but will start sowing seed for Lupins etc now. I can then maybe do an hour a night to clear lawn and get rid of rubbish. Might have to put annuals in this year.
