Diverse projects on the edge of the New Forest and in Sandbanks are reaching the completion of the construction stage just in time for spring. Very different conditions and type of plants required. Back in the New Forest, after many months of planning, construction is now underway in a large garden in Burley. The work begins with a substantial raised patio and path around the house and will continue further into the garden. The snow and freezing temperatures have made things difficult, but work has continued nonetheless. We have many smaller gardens in the design stage and are receiving exciting new enquiries. We have noticed an increasing awareness of the importance of encouraging wildlife of all types, but especially bees into the garden, so hopefully that will mean an end to dull gardens with no bio-diversity. We are very much looking forward to warmer days spent in the garden.
