We were recommended to a couple who asked us to plant 250 bare-rooted charmille saplings & 11 established trees including oaks, peach, catalpa, eucalyptus.
We were asked to return & plant a further mixed hedge within the same short planting season in winter 2011/12. i.e. when it is not too dry, too wet when the clay turns to gloop or too cold & frozen. The hedge comprised 5 different plants in a planned format to achieve a random effect.
We have been back to this garden since the Spring has arrived to install the 'everedge' metal flower bed edger, to rejuvenate existing flower beds, to prune roses, grape vines & trumpet vines and to overhaul, & seed a previously planted bank with grass.
