Garden design through the winter


With the nights drawing in, the leaves falling from the trees and the temperatures plummeting you would be forgiven for thinking that work in the garden is over for another year. But that is certainly not the case, its time for you to think garden design

Winter is the ideal time to get your big plans in order and underway. There’s less pressure in the winter to complete a project, as quickly as you would in the height of the summer, as the garden is not in daily use.  With a little forward planning and knowledge your garden can be at it’s peak when spring arrives, raring to go, ready for those warm days and longer days.

Any garden design or landscaping business worth their salt and even some DIY enthusiasts will know that really low temperatures and fresh cement don’t mix. The water in mortar and concrete can freeze, causing weaknesses, cracks and flaking. But if you plan it correctly and take some basic precautions you can still get those hard landscaping jobs done, even in the depths of winter.

At Hockley Landscapes we love nothing better than being out in the crisp fresh air, turning new designs into reality for our clients.

Consider your garden, what you would really like to do with the space. Do you want to have intimate spaces created? Your own oasis away from it all? Or would you like to incorporate an impressive barbecue space for entertaining friends and family with more than a few burned sausages, even create your own bar right in your own home.
