Bamboo or tree screening? Suitable bamboos?

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 15:49

I bought my bamboos from an expert who grows them in his garden and sells them, digs them up for you.  Cheap as well,  but the point being I could see where they got to in x years time plus got great advice on which types.  I love them, but you need the right one in the right place. 

How to get what you want out of a landscape designer?

Agree with above, but also please go see as many gardens as you can.  You will see lots of things you like and dont like and form firmer opinions on things. Did this designer have a portfolio of completed works and happy clients?  If not, why not? I would have thought they would be itching to show you completed projects.  

Road building anyone?

eh? What are the greyhounds for? Got 2 pointers.  

The pond is big, just out of sight, i could post a pic coming back in the other direction. 

There is a hedge you can see the green tubes along the fence. Oh you mean have a greyhound race track? Well its a thought.

only july for hay cutting.  Tractor plus trailer for hay.  I measured the tractor for the width of the road and took the trailer into account as they dont go round corners too well, so its a gentle arc.  Its a modern tractor but not massive.
