Perfect for a sheltered area that has a low window that you are wanting to plant in front of, or along a path that you are wanting to tree line with a ground cover.
A large window that goes all the way to the ground can be very tricky to garden against. If you do nothing it looks unfinished and if you get the wrong plants it is going to look very messy from the inside looking out.
So let's create a beautiful outlook with a Japanese maple and use a ground cover for the garden area that the tree rises out of. Nothing grows up against the window which is the result we want.The Maple Tree is something magnificent to look at any time of the year, with its fresh green foliage in the Summer and its beautiful colour changes as the seasons move through to Winter.
Garden size required 2m x 2m minimum, but can be larger than this.
