Designing your garden space….
…..June is here, and we are hoping for it to be warmer than last month so we can enjoy the garden, with entertaining or pottering about.
We are doing a lot of plant shopping which is fun, when you find what you want, but some lovely planting on our last couple of Garden Designs, which is good when you can finish a project off and see it through, and get the lovely pics needed.
It can make such a difference when the whole project is done at once, because you can get the build done and then leave empty beds and borders, which then start to fill with weeds if you don’t get round to the plant choices straight away, the other thing it will never look finished, so always take this into account when thinking about the plant side of things. As a Member of the Chartered institute of Horticulture, I would love to encourage planting schemes with creativity in the garden, whether it’s wildlife or Mediterranean to having the right trees, and yes in a small space you can still have a tree it just needs to be the right choice, which is where we can help.
Coming up, we have another pond revamp, large to small for a change but still needs the correct set up and build to get right. Also, some smaller projects are now starting, from a bespoke compost area to front of house re-vamp for a sculpture and with a new terrace and Pleached trees, just to be starting.
We hope those of you who made it to Chelsea Flower Show or any of the others so far this year have enjoyed and got some inspiration, we are always looking for new and creative ideas for our clients and it normally does come from them, a little spark can make all the difference on a project.
