One of my longest standing customers are moving away! These gardens designed by me and Amanda many years ago and worked tenderly each week are to be gardened by another gardener! I am handing the baton over to the new owners plant handlers!.......it's not fair!
Having said that, all is not lost. Although I only have 3 weeks left at this place, the owners, who are two of the nicest people one could ever hope to meet, have asked me to look after their new place.
And here it is, in all of it's virginal garden glory. Brand new!
At the moment planting and landscaping classically along the lines and designs of Irish plumber trying to do his best. But that's one of the best parts as........
.....the owners have asked me, and Amanda who they miss, to re-landscape the grounds......Yeah!!
Some more 'navvy' planting here.....not sure what he was trying to say here.
Big and deeply planted borders are being planned in our heads already. Also, the owners have asked us to get rid of most of the grass in favour of the new borders, which is perfect for it's location, and any small remaining grass to be replaced with Astro turf. It will look great, and be easy to look after when finished.
And just to top it all off, the view from their new road isn't too rough either. Poole Harbour, which today was sparkling in the sunlight...Happy Days!
