Our garden has evolved over the 20 years that we have lived in East Bridgford. There is a lawn which encloses three sides of the house, perennial and shrub borders, and two veg patches. When we moved in, the borders were largely dominated by shrubs, some more interesting than others. Over a number of years, these have been cut back or removed to give way for a greater variety of perennials, providing a more cottage garden feel to several borders. We recently replaced all trellises around the garden and added a pergola to break up a long stretch of lawn. The pergola and trellises provide a framework for climbing roses and clematis. We also have three fruit and veg patches. I think you could call our gardening style 'spontaneous' - I am happy for friendly plants to take seed and spread; I also have a few wild patches (around our pond, for instance) to encourage pollinators and other wildlife. Lockdown is providing me with more time in the garden and every day I count my blessings that I am fortunate to have so much accessible green space both literally on my doorstep and around the village.
