We have a large house on a large site. Approx 1 acre in front. It is a very open lawn with just a few mountain ash planted and a random shrub rockery. We have access to a mini digger and a carpenter willing to make us any wooden features we like. We also have alot of stone leftover the same as the stone on our house.We only have 300 euro to spend but will add to that over the months. Any advice on where to start with design, features and shrubs and plants, would be very welcomed.
