Nine months after planting and the grasses and perennials in this West Lothian garden are establishing nicely. The Miscanthus planted on top of earth mounds lends height without obscuring the view out over the golf course to the Forth and Fife beyond.
9 months after planting herbaceous and grasses are establishing well in this North-facing garden. Trees and shrubs have leafed out well and climbers are starting to scramble up the stainless steel wiring grid attached to the East facing boundary wall.
The path layout has commenced at this job and the Spring should see the start of structural planting. Good to see new construction rather then clearance work. Gales before Christmas saw the development of a dangerous split in the fork of an existing Ash tree on the boundary which required the swift intervention of a team of tree surgeons.
Dropped in to visit a client's small woodland garden which is establishing quite nicely although some gaps have appeared in perennial planting as a result of the recent dry weather. Hopefully this will regenerate now that Summer rain has reappeared. Within the garden is a small stumpery where ferns are establishing nicely:
A garden party was held in this garden to celebrate the completion of the project. Hats off to the clients who carried out mst of the construction and planting work themselves with only limited assistance from contractors - personal satisfaction high!
