well spring is almost upon us and after a fantastic winter the soil is starting to warm up nicely, with plenty of moisture to boot, my ornamental plum is already starting to blossom! which goes to show how well things are, in the garden.
despite the wet weather my team and I have been very busy this season, doing lots of terrific projects for my valuable customers we have laid lots of instant lawn and brick paving. As well moss rock retaining and garden features which continue to be popular.
Boral's Heathstone garden walling has been a favourite too this season along with its accompanying bullnose capping it does make a beautifull and cost effective garden wall
Synthetic or artificial lawn makes a fantastic alternative to large expanses of paving it looks great and is a soft fall option for the kid's play areas or pool surrounds it has come ahead in leaps and bounds as more manufacturers are getting rid of the unnatural shinyness it had, and the colour is getting more and more like the real thing (without fertilising mowing edging and watering of course)
of course plenty of people still remain loyal to natural lawn and the dwarf kikuyu has proven to be a winner for us although this time of year the lawn is dormant and a bit off colour (due to it being a warm season lawn ) our suppliers are over sowing with a rye grass to help it retain its colour and appearance during its first winter, of course with some carefull mowing and maintenance the kikuyu will take over by next winter.
its amazing how a few days of warm sunny weather makes my phone ring and already lots of quotes have been done in readiness for this spring and summer season so I encourage you if you want to get a nice new garden lawn sprinklersystem or even a brick paved patio, before christmas silly season kicks in! don't leave it too late or you could be disappointed, I do no obligation quotes so what are you waiting for?
till next time, happy gardening and a big thanks to all our customers this year who have supported me and my team with some great projects
thanks, Graham :)
