More of a planting renovation than a redesign, the client asked for help to bring back the colour to the three separate gardens surrounding his manor farmhouse which had become neglected and overrun with perennial weeds during the years spent bringing up their children.

The weeds were one thing and all in a days work, but other more unusual challenges came in the from a couple of aged and incontinent collies, an athletic australian sheepdog, a brace of jack russels, a seemingly never ending clutch of escaping chickens and even the occasional adventurous Tamworth pig. The unwary gardener would also be subject to frequent and sometimes violent ambushes by Cato the resident tabby. But somehow a garden re-emerged.
