Garden transformation

This garden was started in the depths of winter and recently finished end of April. It consisted on cutting back the previous years of growth. Remove a few years of weeds, prune back the shrubs, edge the grass and make the garden low maintenance. The grass was adjusted and realigned to remove the acute curves. It goes to show what a couple of hours a week for four months can achieve. Enjoyed the journey with the client and they were happy with the result

The start
Getting into the roots and couch grass
Realigning the grass
Apply everedge and whin stone chips
The finish

Dalgety Bay Bamboo

This was a bamboo removal job carried out in Sept 2021. The roots had travelled under the patio. The job included the removal of the grass and filter two tonnes of soil to take out any roots or rhizomes. As a precaution a membrane was added to prevent regrowth.


This was a shared garden area. The work was to extend the previously built screen ,put in a permanent patio area and insert gravel boards.
