It is now time to give the garden a good clean up, pruning back plants that have just finished flowering and filling any gaps with new shrubs or trees. If you are not sure Sharon CroftS LandSCape d e S ign • Consultations • Design Concepts • Planting Plans about what to prune and when, types of plants that are best for a particular position, or if wanting to carry out more extensive garden renovations then it is worth seeking advice from a professional. A landscape designer can add a new perspective to your garden project providing additional ideas, and knowledge of plants and where best to plant them with autumn ideal for taking a re-look at the garden and making changes, or revamping it. “This summer’s hot conditions have taxed some plants and this may mean there are some gaps in the garden that need filling in or you might want a fresh look,” says landscape designer Sharon who owns and operates Sharon Crofts Landscape Designs. Sharon can advise on what will work best for a particular position in your garden and how you can create the outdoor look you are seeking. “With the hottest months over, planting in February and March gives plants a better rate of survival making this an ideal time to create a new garden layout,” explains Sharon. “As the weather cools you can start wrenching any plants you want to shift and looking for suitable species to fill the gaps.” Sharon reminds that autumn is ideal for seeding a lawn, advising not to leave it too late to sow as early frosts can knock grass and plant growth back. Fruit trees can also be planted and over winter, it may be possible to purchase these as well as roses and other deciduous trees, bare rooted which can be a little more affordable. Sharon has studied and worked in horticulture and landscape technology for a number of years. Sharon Crofts Landscape Design offers landscape design services covering: landscape plans for new and existing houses; planting plans, proposals and pictorials; sub-division developer landscape concepts or full plans; elevations; construction details; and plant sourcing.
