The large garden area is freely visible from the sidewalk. There is also a manhole cover in the middle of the battered lawn that covers the oil tank. He should be hidden, but remain accessible. The garden is used by several residents.
Proposal 1: Screening by hedges and wild wine
In order to make the garden more inviting, several short privet hedges grow in front of the existing garden fence, which should be preserved. The tall wooden posts for the trellis were simply placed in front of the low fence posts. They are connected with slats and provided with so-called riders. Both are covered by the foliage of the wild wine, which turns red in September.
The manhole cover of the oil tank has disappeared under the front, slightly raised wooden deck. A bottom flap ensures access to the tank
At the same time, the wooden terrace offers a nice seat in the middle of the garden, which is also big enough for barbecues. The smaller wooden deck, which forms a nice counterbalance to the design, can be used, for example, for sunbathing and reading. For cuddlyness provide trees such as the flowering in the spring Radspiere (right) and the evergreen column yew trees, which serve as a screen to the neighbors, and a ball Robinia. The perennial border on the front deck mainly consists of extensive plantings that give it a nice calm effect. Bergenien grow in front right and diagonally opposite. They bloom in May / June and their large leaves turn reddish in autumn. In the background you can see the already yellow stalks of the New Zealand wind grass. However, it thrives only in mild areas. Alternatively you can plant low whistling grass (Molinia caerulea 'Dauerstrahl').
On the small wooden deck, a dense strip of lady's mantle grows, behind which shine the autumn-colored stalks of the New Zealand wind grass. Flowers are provided by the white autumn anemone (left) and the common sun hat as well as the tuberous weed (right). In front of the garden fence are Radspiere and pillar yew
At the front left, the decorative leaves of the women's coat cover the floor. To ensure that they look good until the winter, they are cut back near the ground right after flowering in July. The perennial drifts then new. Small areas of tuber firewort, autumn anemone, common sunhat, and phlox serve as eye-catchers. Around the small wooden deck, the same perennials were used, but here throughout in smaller groups. At the end of the bed, a hydrangea blossoms.
