March Gardening Project

March Gardening Project

Invest in ground cover Shrubs and Alpines. (This means no weeding cuts down on labour intensive gardening we have a good selection available)

Choose colour in your garden, for example when the sun fades some coloured shrubs fade but yellow or variegated shrubs are the last colour to disappear with the light and the first to become apparent in the morning.

Tip: Plant yellow conifers or shrubs as focal points, top of steps at the garden gate, the end of driveways or in arbours . Also add yellow foliage perennials at the end of the border so it’s extent is seen at twilight.

Tip: unsightly walls can look bland add trellises to take your eye away or add a focal point by using a statue or garden mirror.

Tip: Climbers added to the wall can create colour. For example grey stone walls add deep purple pink or red flowering climbers to give a tropical feel. Or red brick walls choose white soft blue and lemon flowering climbers to soften the wall.

Large gravelled areas add an urn or ornate trough in the centre to create a focal point.

Use Cordylines Palms or Yucca plants.

New gardens invest in mature shrubs this creates a mature look to the garden.

For example a large Photinia Red Robin , Mature Standard Bay tree or a Olive tree.

Old and tired fencing can be restored with Reed screening Thatch screening and Bamboo screening stapled to an old fence We have a large selection available at the nursery.

Bark beds to prevent weeds in the borders.
