I am looking for ideas for my French house's garden, ideally need to
pictures of what is here now and describe my ideas and get feedback. An

online forum rather than usenet would be better if there are any good
you chaps can recommend? otherwise i can post some pics and link to them

here if this is the better place to get some advice from you kind

I tried to plane my own garden one time, but in result it was compleatly
lame, becouse lack of exp, so u better try to call some pro's in that
case. Casual amateurs tips will not make u garden of ur dream)

You mean you want somebody else's ideas for *your* garden? There are
many mistakes you can make of a practical kind, such as putting
rhododendrons on chalky soil, sun-loving plants on a north-facing wall,
or a pond under deciduous trees, etc, but these aren't design matters.

If I want a good laugh I always look at the "inspired" gardens at
Chelsea and Hampton Court. Well, they certainly make me take a deep
breath just before a long sigh...
