How to plant for new build properties


I want to share with you some 
simple things you can do
that will not cost the Earth.



The secret of creating a beautiful 
planting display by your front door.

I would like to share with 
you what I feel is
a very important gardening 
issue in 2021.

I recently was on a vacation 
and came across some very 
unattractive looking 
huge brick,newly built 
properties.



Of course they will take 
time to blend into the 
landscape. 



See the steps below.

1.Think about the position, 
is it sunny or shady?



2. If there is space you 
could have tallish planters
with summer flowers
like verbena bonariensis, 
poppies  and 
grasses perhaps.

3. Stand outside the front 
of your property and
see what it looks like 
with no greenery.



4. As there is not likely to be 
a lot of space, think about 
a few 'standard' trees or 
roses either side of 
the front door.

5. Something like bay 
trees, known as 'standards' 
look like lolipop shapes. 



They always looks very 
formal if well pruned into 
a nice ball shape.

6. Something that is symmetrical 
would look really good 
and break up the colour 
of the red bricks.

7. These 'standards' are 
grown for some years
so you will need to 
pay more for them than 
you might think.

8. Do you want 
something scented?


9. Do you just want 
year round colour?


10. Do you want to share the 
cost with your neighbours
and spend a bit more?


Follow these tips and 
ask me if you need 
any more advise.


Happy Planting.
