Design Elements

with landscape Designer Louise McDaid
When you look at your garden, can you see the wood for the trees?
Have the trees and shrubs taken over?
This problem seem to sneak up on us, and before we know it, there’s too much shade, and you’ve lost a lot niceness about your garden that you started with.
But before you get out those loppers yourself, take a step back and listen to this.
Before you go out into the garden, remember lopping big branches is really a job for the experts.
The branch is always heavier than you thought it was, and has a habit of falling in a different direction to what you had planned.
Not to mention that getting up ladders with loppers and side cutters is quite dangerous.
