Some photos of garden styling.

Post  Smithy on Thu Dec 10, 2009 12:32 am

I have been styling this garden for the last 5 years. It had some nice things in it when i got to care for it but just borders with shrubs . I have just used what was there and played with it.

Outstanding...very beautiful. I can only imagine the amount of attention necessary to keep a garden in such a refined state. Thank you for sharing!

Nice job there fella. It certainly looks like you spend more than 3 hours a week on that patch!
Great to see another enthusiastic multi-skilled horticulturalist.
In a protected spot cordyline aus. should be okay, just need to tie up the leaves and wrap them and the trunk in fleece or burlap throgh any real cold spells.

Great garden Smithy, you obviously have got a good pair of green thumbs and you must be good at multi tasking if you spend only 3 hours a week on it
I can defenitely can see some Niwaki inspiration here.

Again, great garden

I must not take all the credit as the owners had kept it spotless up until i took over looking after it, so i didn't have to really transform this one but just give it a niwaki twist. The owners now who are getting not so agile can watch me buzz in for 3 hrs a week . They don't have to worry about anything in the garden, they let me just get on with it but they do get some one to cut the lawn in the summer so i don't waste time on it. They like the place spotless so i keep it spotless. .

You can get a lot done in the 3 hrs over 5years .

After that job i go on and do this one which i do 4 hour a month .
