The Brief

To trim the hedge to perfection.

Garden Site Problems

Not a problem but was very loooong!

And the road was on a gradient.

Our Solution

A ladder, a Stihl hedge trimmer, a spirit level and a set square. Ok not the last two, but a keen eye instead.

Dave Austen Roses – Garden Design – Pimlico, London

Gardening Case Study

Today we are looking at a garden design project in Pimlico, London for a very charming family.

The Brief

Garden design is a big part of the gardening services we offer and traditional, flowering plants, like roses are always a popular request from clients. Our brief was to tidy up the site and prepare it for planting roses and climbers that would form a distinctive garden feature.

Garden Site Problems

The site was close to the house walls and had poor quality soil that had not been fed with fertiliser for many years. It also needed garden maintenance in the form of weeding to prepare the site for planting.

Our Solution

Sometimes we need to start from scratch and so we put together a plan for some Rose varieties to be planted, with climbers behind would grow up the side of the the walls to give a beautiful flowering rose in summertime.

For this particular garden, we suggested roses to be planted to add some distinctive design to the garden and additional charm to the house.

Here’s how it looks now the Roses are planted.

Varieties clustered together in a row, climbers behind to spread across the wall

Seasoned Gardeners Carrying Soil

Seasoned Gardeners Planted Climbers With Fertiliser

I removed 3″ of soil and replaced it with well rotted horse manure

 

Successful Outcome

After carrying 400kg of soil through the house in to the van and back out again at the recycling unit single handedly, I was ready for my favourite dinner.

We had rose varieties clustered together in a row, with climbers behind to grow and spread across the wall

The client was delighted with our work and now their rose garden is set up, ready to grow into something very beautiful over the next few years. Also a garden they can enjoy for many years to come.

Tree Removal for Inigo Property Developers in Richmond Upon Thames

Gardening Case Study

The property developer – Inigo- required a tree removing at the request of their client in Richmond.

The Brief

They wanted the tree down as it was blocking the view from the window.

Their own lands didn’t fancy sawing away on a narrow 10ft high brick wall.

Garden Site Problems

Did I mention it was a narrow 10ft high brick wall?

Our Solution

Sum up some courage, don’t look down and engage a Zen like mindfulness.

Successful Outcome

Made a new friend Steve the site manager, a garden designer himself who would employ my skills again for another gardening project.
