Keeping others out – and the dog in!

Sometimes things just need a finishing touch. This Cornish slate wall was hidden under thick ivy, which we cleared. No-one knows why the block section was there… Perhaps an old gateway which was blocked up?
We then constructed a feather-edge fence to match and join up the 2 side fences, which were at completely different heights; as is the way with Cornish gardens! Much more privacy, and no more escaping pets.

Late summer tidy ups…

It’s been a busy year for everyone at Green Envy, we’ve been working hard (and safely) all the way through this pandemic; even taking on another member of staff.
In the last couple of months we’ve been busy getting gardens ready for winter!
Here’s a few before and after shots on some of the more unruly properties recently; lots of weeds to dig out (brambles galore), ivy to diminish, and shrubs to prune back:

The Second Step of Change

Earlier this year we replaced an old and storm damaged fence for a customer.

Now, we’ve been back, on the second step of the journey to redesign this space. We’re after a relaxing space, with less grass to keep on top of. For this stage, we’ve focused on the bottom half of the garden to create a new decking area and wide border bed, to allow for shrubs and some climbers along the fence.

The next steps involve laying a unique patio and slate chipping design on the opposite side of the garden, with some raised beds, to really pull the garden together as a whole.
