You should consider planting a mixed border of shrubs and perennial flowers. The shrubs are mostly placed towards the back because they tend to be taller, but low ones can go near the  front. 

Perennial flowers fill in nicely between shrubs and need relatively little labour.

If you go to our Plant finder you will get lots of suggestions for planting according to plant type, size and flowering.  Also visit garden centres a number of times in a 12-month period to get a spread of interest through the year as different plants flower at different times.
