Use a combination of a few shrubs, perennial flowers and bulbs.

Shrubs will give structure year round. Perennial flowers will give summer colour and bulbs for spring.

Raise the soil in a mound and dig in compost or coarse sand to open the soil.

Then visit a few garden centres about 4 or 5 times and pick out different plants that you like for different seasons.
