It’s been an unusually snowy month in the Shades of Green patch – not so bad for design work in a nice warm office but tough on the contractors building gardens out in the cold.
This month one build has been completed, three are in process and there is plenty of design work and planting design going on. Plant lists are being lodged with the trade nurseries and dates are accumulating in the diary for planting work in the spring. A fairly typical February in the garden design world…
The completed build in Falkirk includes terracing of the sloping garden, plus some nice upgrading of hard landscaping closer to the house:
Planting design has now been completed and approved for this garden, and includes some lovely structural shrubs such as Hamamelis mollis, seen here in the Shades of Green garden in the February snow:
Other work this month has included phase 2 planting for a garden near Rosyth built last summer, planting design for a garden in Kinross that it nearing completion, initial consultation recommendations for a large garden in Fife, concept design for a new project in Kinross, revision of plans for a new build home outside Milnathort, and landscape plans for planning permission for an off-grid house in Perth and Kinross:
