Each time I speak to my lovely clients they tell me that the next phase will be completed next season. This has always been the plan. Several times the next phase has been brought forward and my most recent visit saw a painted shed and freshly stacked log pile.
In a position to take advantage of the current dormant season, my clients decided they would order the boundary beech hedge and multi-stem Amelanchier now rather than wait until next autumn. An exciting, albeit freezing, day's planting ensued.
A new garden is truly starting to emerge from this snow covered site. We were even blessed with a blue sky to boot.
Installation of the steel Dial structure is scheduled for March and the rest of the planting thereafter. Watch this space!
