Garden renovation is not the same as garden clearance…
… You need to be able to identify the plants and shrubs and know how to prune them properly.
But it always requires a lot of hard work…
… and the shifting of large amounts of waste.
In this garden, we were informed that beneath the growth of bramble, elder and laurel was a path and a border. In addition, a few years back it had been the dumping area for clay from the excavation of a fish pond.
With the bulk of the brambles removed, the task of removing the excess clay soil was started
With the clay disposed of, an edge was constructed using reclaimed timber and the border topped up with clean top soil ready for planting.
