Our landscape designer is taking no chances – he’s carefully marked out the areas for landscaping and to avoid any doubt, he’s labelled some areas clearly!
They are due to start this week laying the lawn and digging the flower beds. This will at least make the front of the house presentable for our visitors. It will be quite an operation to plant up, when the beds are marked out they are huge!
Next on the list of lanscaping priorities is the removal of the gorse which is a NZ blight and needs to be removed/destroyed to avoid it taking over the bush and rest of the landscape. Also, we need to reinstate the fencing as soon as possible to make it all basset proof.
We’ve been enjoying a heat wave this week – yesterday it was 30 degrees and last evening was very balmy. I just hope it’s not summer already – of if it is that it lasts until our last visitor departs. Wishful thinking……..
