The weather really does make a difference!

Does it not make everyone feel great when the weather is this good – I know it does me! In our line of business the weather plays such an important role in being able to progress our landscaping projests as efficiently as we would like. When the weather is bad – wet is always the one I am most disappointed to see on the forecast – we often have to accept that any attempt at progress will be at the cost of extra work to make good to the ground being ruined by paddling about in the mud! Also in many circumstances we have to consider the integrity and the standard of the work being carried out whilst conditions are poor. However, when the sun shines everyone appears full of energy and the progress is almost enough to make management smile.

This week is the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show – an event that I strongly recommend a visit to. I shall be going on Friday this year and  am looking forward to seeing the show gardens which I always feel promote the very best in British Horticulture. If you are considering a revamp of the garden a visit can always inspire ideas and themes which you may wish to introduce at home.

I was invited to revisit a garden that we recently completed for a client in the Horsham area and thought I would share a few photographs with you. The paving is a Bradstone product in Autumn Gold with the brick walling being a Freshfield Lane Multi capped with a Warham Red. The half brick edging and circle detail is also in the Warnham Red. The screening panels to the rear of the garden are called Venetian screens and are made by Jacksons Fencing and have been used to disguise a garden wall that although structurally good was not visually appealing.
