We took on a garden of a repossessed house in Molesey. The garden was a dense thicket which had been left to nature for at least 10 years. After days of hacking back we found a muddy rectangle, broken shed and wobbly path. We levelled and laid a lawn in diagonal strips to break up the narrow rectangle and allow for triangular planting pockets. We replaced the shed with a double fronted one which we painted a calming green.
At The Old Moat, we worked with volunteers and trainees to create an all year round fruit and vegetable garden to provide produce for the cafe. We added seasonal plants such as Cosmos and Dahlias, herbs and bulbs to extend the colour and interest throughout the year for their visitors. This planting plan of over 60 different plant varieties was collated by Olivia, a volunteer horticulturalist as an essential record and useful guide.
We want to create gardens that work for our clients. Too often gardeners just maintain what is already there without questioning its value. Gardens are dynamic so you need to reassess how they are working and have the courage to remove plants that have outgrown their worth, divide plants and suggest new plants to maximise the interest in the space available. Once we have created a garden that works well and will deliver year round interest and colour, then we write up a maintenance to suit. Our aim is to build long term relationships with our clients and their gardens. We source quality nursery plants from nurseries in Surrey. We are always transparent about our fees and pricing. George is a qualified tree surgeon from Capel Manor college
with several years’ maintenance experience and Sarah is RHS qualified from Merrist wood with over 20 years’ experience in gardening and allotment management. We have worked at public gardens and private gardens in Surrey.
