spring is in the air...

Looking out of my window now, the rain is pouring and working in the garden is a half remembered dream, but now is really a very good time to make plans for the garden. Making plans now, especially for larger projects – from evaluating borders to redesigning the whole garden – means that work can be carried out in spring and you can enjoy the fruits of your labour by the summer.
When evaluating your borders consider structure, are there plants with enough structural interest to carry the garden through the winter and to give height? – remember a garden is 3 dimensional! Are there contrasting forms and textures to give interest.
If you are considering a complete overhaul remember that “form follows function” so ensure that in the planning stage the garden will meet your needs ands don’t sacrifice functionality for aesthetics.
