Landscapers - advice needed

Posted: 30/08/2015 at 12:22

If you don't know anyone who's had some landscaping done, then ask the landscapers on your shortlist if they have customers you could visit/speak to for recommendation - I've been happy to do this for the builders we use as we're very pleased with his work.

Climbers, fences and shade

They're tough as old boots in the UK Obelixx - it's your low continental temperatures that are the problem

As Obelixx says, the viticella clematis will be great there - also have a look at the Clematis alpinas - many of them would be perfectly happy there and you'll get masses of blooms in the spring, feathery seedheads through the summer and some late blooms around now. 

They will also cover the trellis and give you the privacy you want, and don't need pruning

Oooooh Hosta - that sounds wonderful - the BBQ I mean, although the breakfast doesn't sound too bad either - lurve salami

We've now decided to abandon plans for big lunch as OH has only just had breakfast - a light lunch will be taken later then supper will be .......... smoked Westcountry bacon, local butcher's sausages, free range eggs, tomatoes from the garden, mushrooms and some fried sliced new potatoes ........ there's sourdough bread to mop up the juices ......... the queue starts at our back door ...........

Welcome to the potting shed

The grass snakes will leave you alone Michael, they just want an occasional frog or newt for lunch then they'll disappear again
