Garden of the Month for December

29 November 2017

This month’s garden is one that we implemented during the winter of this year.


We are particularly proud of this project because it was chosen by “The Colonial Stone Paving Company” to market their rebranding of the Company Name to “The Creative Stone Company”.  It’s a great example of how to create lots of interest in a garden through the use of different textures like wood, paving, cladding and of course plants.


Summer Garden Maintenance

29 November 2017

We are now well into the summer period and as you know we have been having some really hot spells already but fortunately the rain fall has not been too bad compared to previous Summers.  


  • Continue watering, feeding and mulching Roses on a regular basis, and continue with the spraying program against pests and diseases

  • Keep a lookout for scale insects on shrubs and treat with an appropriate insecticide or organic remedy.

  • Mow lawns regularly, but take care not to mow too short, which will expose roots to the sun and cause lawns to dry out very quickly causing lawn burn. Leave the leaf blade slightly longer to encourage strong/ deep root growth instead.

  • Feed lawns once a month with a 3:2:1 fertilizer at a rate of 60g/m2

  • Control weeds in the lawn with a broad-leafed weed killer where necessary

  • Start sowing winter flowering annuals
