Last year was our busiest ever with our final garden build of the year in Lyme Regis finishing just before Christmas.
With a lot of new builds happening in Wimborne we have been busy designing several of these small plots for clients. As with most new builds, the developers just put down a tiny strip of patio and a lawn and so are in much need of improvement. It has been interesting designing these small gardens to create attractive spaces which are easy to look after and enjoyable to look at and use.
We are currently in the middle of overseeing the build of a large garden in Wimborne for a keen plants woman and are looking forward to planting this when the weather warms up a bit. We are continuing on a large scale project overlooking the water in Sandbanks.
Viburnum tinus ‘Lisarose’
This is a fairly new variety of Viburnum tinus, with dark green leaves and deep red buds which open to creamy white flowers from December to April, followed by blue-black berries. It is evergreen, low maintenance and tolerant of both sun and deep shade and so is a valuable garden staple providing year round interest. Flowering from midwinter onwards, it provides colour at a time when it is all the more appreciated.
