Blank canvas

Posted by debido66 none (My Page) on

My garden is a bit of a blank canvas, it's approx 20 square and accessed by patio doors onto paving, I plan to put decking over the paving. I attempted to do the garden last year and put a strip along the back so I could put a BBQ and bamboo in, other than that its blank.
Any ideas on how I could create a low maintenance Japanese garden. I'd like to keep a small area of grass as I do yoga.
I'm unsure of plants to plant. I love color, quirky, the more unusual the better !! Any ideas ?

RE: Blank canvas

Sounds like an ideal spot for container gardening with coleus, Persian Shield, heucheras, and other annuals. As long as you have water accessable to keep the containers moist. Good luck.
