The client came to us after having the garden designed and built. Our remit has been to care for the planting, bringing it on to maturity and ensuring it fulfils the original vision. After a year of bedding in and finding the right balance of irrigation versus natural water retention in the garden, the planting has benefitted hugely and has thrived. Now in to our third year, the garden is maturing and filling out well and our time spent caring for it has increased to help keep it looking sharp and tidy. Flowers are selectively deadheaded in a systematic approach rather than just chopping them back, leading to a constant rotation of flowers and a longer period of interest.
