      It may not be 72 pages, but it will still be shovel breaking GA clay.

      Rain, can you post a line drawing of the overhead view of your house, yard, tortuga, other hardscape features?
      Also, what is your objective?
      What is your plan?

      I gave up on the English garden Max.
      Not feasible.

      I'm just going to trial and error this. Gasp you may...this may turn out to be a bigger disaster than the pond
      Wife wants lots of color all year round...I'll also try to soften the look of the formal pond.

      If you can find it, try tibouchina. It comes as a dwarf bush or a tree with standard or multi trunk similar to a crape myrtle. Your climate may require it be covered during the winter so I would stick to the dwarf version. Dark green leaves, blooms most of the year, loves direct sun. The cascading purple flowers should make her happy.

      Potted annuals are an easy way to get big color for small work. Must re-do next year.

      Rain, I understand. Suggest getting some large planting pots - I like the ones with a blue glaze because it's a good strong color that goes with so many other colors of flowers and foliage. If you get annual plants, they will be in color for several months and not a heartbreak when they're exhausted.

      Also, you can pick one or two spots where you see your garden and color the heck out of those spots where you walk and can view from window without having to do the whole place. Potted annuals can be your friends. And you can plant veg. in them, too. Tomatoes, scallions, salad greens. You can move the pots around. But annuals have to be replanted next year.
      If you want me to delete these so you can keep record of your progress, will do.
