Finishing Touches to Large Front Garden

Final trees and shrubs for large suburban front garden.

Today I planted a Cercis canadensis Forest Pansy from Palmstead Nurseries as a specimen feature tree in the recently laid front lawn. I decorated the base with slate rocks from Provender Nurseries and Kelkay twilight grey gravel from Shannon’s Garden Centre.

The two missing Prunus lusitanicas from Provender finally arrived, so I moved both Leycesteria formosas in each side border to make space for these.

As I was finishing up a neighbour walked past and said I had ‘done a lovely job’ which really made my day.

Have tools, will travel!
