A quick and effective garden make-over was required pre-sale to spruce up some tired areas of the existing garden as well as soften hard-standing areas around the building including entry treatment. A well-defined lawn shape has been created to improve aesthetic appeal.
Semi-mature white-barked birch trees were introduced to suit the damp ground conditions and provide scale and a more mature look. Dark green Holy is used against the concrete block wall with silver Astelia as a foreground contrast. In other beds understorey plants were introduced to complement the existing material. Timber planter boxes with colourful annuals help soften the building and pool surrounds.
