Setting out the garden design

So, you saw the design plan in my previous post of the 17th May.  Now here we are on site doin’ a bit of hard work!  In the above pic. you can see the new shape of the lawn is nicely defined and in the foreground the sub-base for the new area of paving has been laid.  We have also started to clear back existing overgrown shrubs and prepare the soil for the new planting.

Laying out the new plants

The planting includes retained perennials, such as the Iris pictured above, that are divided to create new plants as well as newly supplied potted plants.   Setting out of the planting beds is something that I like to keep control over…



  • Thanks for showing the in progress picture, many times its hard to visualize all the prep work needed to develop and plant a new garden.
