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

Posted: 21/07/2014 at 17:12

I suggest you collect together some pictures of gardens, plants and features that you like - a sort of mood board or scrap book - clippings from gardening magazines, photographs of other peoples gardens that you like, places you've been to etc, as well as make a list of practical uses you'll need in your garden, e.g. herb patch, washing line, BBQ, patio, shady seat, children's play area, veg patch etc.  

That will give a good designer something to start with ....

Road building anyone?

I suppose it's worth bearing in mind that if the access is only needed for haymaking, the ground should be pretty firm at that time of year.

Haymaking is rarely done in wet weather

Rose seeds

I think that if you sow them this year they may well not germinate until next year - I'd leave them outside in a quiet shady corner and go and have a look in the spring.

I've recently started getting annoying pop ups including some purporting to be from Google Chrome telling me to update my settings - I've been into Google Chrome via their website rather than via a pop up and refreshed all my settings - it seems to have sorted things .... so far ....

Office Plant Identification

I once took a whole load of pelargoniums into the office for the winter - when we were shut over Christmas and a cold snap was threatened the lovely cleaner moved them all away from the windows and into the centre of the room and turned the heating up a bit (don't tell the boss!)
