I haven't been here long enough to know what or how I want things. So right now, if I am unfamiliar with something, doing flowers is new to me, experimenting is what I am doing. And I am redoing my outside, putting in a new walkway will give me a new area to do more experimenting. I am starting to put in some perennials and as long as they work out they will remain the same.
Have a great gardening day! hoe, hoe, hoe Pea Upstate NY, zone 5
I imagine a mud pit in the backyard come spring. It's weeds. Nothing but clover, plaintain, dandelions, etc. I love the clover but it's not the first thing to emerge. We'll see. I know that clover smothers out all other weeds and there are none where clover is.
The grass is being smothered. But thankfully, no creeping charlie!

Your color balance is great! I love how edibles are integrated into your design. Still working on converting my urban "homescape" into a productive, multipurpose and eye pleasing layout/edible landscape. So far this year (2017) I have integrated rhubarb, fennel and trying a number of veggies into the front beds and walkways. The herbs from prior years are doing ok except for the Tarragon.
Henry was a Harry Lauder Walking stick tree, and you can see it above.
He ended up being a Jap Beetle lunch and looked crappy all summer, so I ripped him out.
Hubby used the truck to yank it out with a chain.
I'm going to reinvent this spot:
Gonna make it a bit smaller, so that the lawn mower can get past it this time. It could before, but then bed 4 got a bit bigger when hubby was not looking and the lawn mower could not get by. Those things happen.
