PROJECT NEWS: Developing a private garden in Essex
The second of four projects supplied by allgrowth, Peter and the team visited a private residence in Nazeing, Essex. The customer was a building services company owner who had already seen Peter’s expertise at first-hand on a previous tree and landscaping project at Broxlea Meadows and a riverside screening project.
Honest advice from the start
Looking to create a stunning tree-lined view from his home across the rear of the property, the customer was looking at tree ferns. Whilst giving the visual impact he may have been looking for, Peter offered some alternative options – ones that would be more suitable, both from a climate and ongoing maintenance perspective.
The customer respected the honesty and instead of the ferns, allgrowth sourced, supplied, delivered and planted an impressive double avenue of Italian cypress.
Simple and effective landscapes
To accompany and complement the 12 statuesque Italian specimens, Cupressus sempervirens (300-350cm container grown), Peter advised on underplanting. Selecting and supplying 150 Photinia x fraserii Little Red Robin in 5 litre pots, these compact evergreens will display glorious green and red foliage throughout the seasons as well as delicate flowers in the Spring.
How the garden took shape:
Making a difference to the customer
“We took a small project to Peter for advice at my home with a few basic ideas of what we wanted to achieve. Peter took the base idea and was not afraid to offer his honest professional opinion and alternative suggestions. We took this on board and changed the planting ideas to Peter’s recommendations – and all was delivered and planted and looks fabulous”
