The bed in front of the house was the first one I planted up; the main structure went in late December 2017.

It's a mixed border including: Buddleja nivea, Rubus phoenicolasius, Salix helvetica, Sorbaria sorbifolia 'Sem', Zanthoxylum stenophyllum, Ribes sanguineum 'Albescens' Rosa sericea subsp. omeiensis f. pteracantha,
Rosa setipoda, Rosa 'Edith Holden' several different Pinus, Mahonia and Euonymus, Miscanthus (x4), Deschampsia and Stipa, Geranium, Chrysanthemum, Veronicastrum, Echinacea, Kniphofia, Astelia, Melianthus major, Arum creticum, Muscari, Galanthus.

On the other side of the drive is the large weeping willow from which the property gets its name. This was pollarded in March 2019.

I also inherited a group of conifers which have since been re-shaped in a Japanese style, and new plantings have been introduced in front including: Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula', Magnolia liliflora nigra, Magnolia stellata 'Royal Star', Magnolia 'Daphne', Crataegus laevigata 'Pink Corkscrew', several MahoniasBupleurum fruticosum, Aster ageratoides and 'Harrington's Pink', Molinia 'Transparent', Panicum 'Warrior' and Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'
