How to add some structure to your garden

The idea of this planting design is to help provide a solid foundation on which to build going forward; as we gardeners say ‘gardens grow’. So use this planting design to give your garden all year round interest. The plant list can be used a guide so don’t worry if you can’t find the exact variety any helpful garden centre or nursery will be able to give you any alternative that will work just as well. In this design I aim to give are of you garden some structure by adding some height and depth, I have also I left room for some perennials which can be underplanted with bulbs, I’ve suggested using Asters and Alliums but you could use whatever is your favourite.
