Planting & Design Portfolio

Using planting to screen neighbours

Nikki & Andy were over looked by the neighbours.

They get on fine but just wanted a little more privacy but how to solve it?  A 15’ hedge or Fence would have looked like the Berlin Wall so I used a planting solution instead.  These 3 small Rowan Trees are ideal.  These will fill out and form a low density screen for their garden. Rowan are small trees perfect for blotting out eyesores (and neighbours windows) or adding height and structure to an other wise low vists garden.  They grow red or yellow berries but their advantage is they naturally grow into a small tree – you don’t fall into the common pitfall of that wonderful term ‘well it was only small when I planted it’ phrase I hear so often when clients plant beasts like Eycalyptus, Certain species of Silver Birch, Lelandii and the like in small gardens!

Sarah Bath

Sarah has a lovely house but the lawn was totally out of control.  Pitted and rutted it was impossible to mow.  She parks the car at the bottom of the garden and hates having to look at it and the industrial estate behind is an eyesore…..what shall we do? Hmmmm
