The planting design for this garden in Fleet, Hampshire combined the clients aspirations for interest from early spring through to late autumn. Planting included a mixture of semi mature shrubs, climbing plants, herbaceous plants and ground cover planting.

The main remit here was to provide an instant hedge to provide privacy within a few growing seasons along the front of this garden in Woking, Surrey. Other planting was kept simple providing summer interest with a backdrop of a shingle mulch.
The area was completed with a new lawn and the planting of a Cherry tree providing height.

Another stage for this particlaur project in Little Bookham, Leatherhead, Surrey was the reinstablishment of a new semi mature hedge after the original mature rhododendron hedge line had to be removed to accomodate a new altered boundary fence line. After discussion a Holly hedge – Ilex aquifolium was chosen, root balled 1.80-2.00m tall.
Prep work was substantial with excavation of a trench, new EverEdge Pro edging used to define the border boundary and importation of a soil organic matter mix medium. Ilex aquifolium hedge was planted with an irrigation pipe to aid direct watering to the roots.
Wild flower turf was laid road side adjacent to the hedging with re-used water worn westmorland stone as protection against vehicle damage.
