Oriental design


By Mookins

Norfolk, United Kingdom Gb

Am after some oreiental inspiration that will be in a section of garden

It gets hit first by the early morning sun, quite a hot spot,cools down by about 1pm not much wind but with an area always shaded possible best for a climber as its a thin section against a shed.Im more than happy to have fruit bushes/trees and and more than happy to add in a pergola

Im after lots of colour, climbers,various heights and ground cover. lots of scents but needs to be non bare through winter.

Like I said they dont have to be oreiental just looking that way. The area to cover is a reversed "L" shape.

hope people can see the start to my vision. Im saving hard for this area so if anybody knows or seen anything on offers please let me know

thanks all for your help, will keep up to date with this area with lots of photos and blogs

Any chance of a photo of the area, to get a general idea of the space? And are you sure you mean oriental - Japanese gardens, for instance, are loads of pebbles swirled into shapes every day, with possibly a cherry tree and an acer or two. And water, of course, very important in oriental spaces

I manage to find quite a few treasures in charity shops, usually very reasonably priced, just a thought!
