It's That Time of Year Again !
Getting the Basics Right
More than just a lawn !
It's not just about a quick mow. Edging and bordering of the lawn will ensure a distinct separation from your plants, making it look great. Not everyone wants a bowling green lawn. Cutting too short increases maintenance and weakens your grass. So cutting on a regular basis with sharp tools to the appropriate length will ensure green green grass.
Digging for Glory !
Soil preparation is key to getting the most out of your plants. Good soil means good healthy, productive plants, that you will enjoy for seasons to come. Knowing your soil type is key to understanding what will thrive and what will suffer I can test your soil and work with you to advise on best approaches to a flourishing plant scheme. Advising on plants, location and type to ensure they reach their potential.
Snip Snip !
Make no mistake, plants should be pruned at the appropriate time in order for them to flourish. Using techniques learnt from the RHS, careful pruning will maintain shape, health, productivity and life of the plants, ensuring a healthy growth next season
Right Plant, Right Place !
Colour; fragrance; sun or shade; filling an empty space? All of these form some of the considerations when choosing the right plants for the right place. There is definitely a right or wrong place - understand your planting location before you plant !
