Garden after planting and tidying

This weekend I’ve worked at Schooner Close, Isle of Dogs.

Before I started garden was full of overgrown shrubs, wilted plants, empty pots, randomly placed plants, weeds in the gravel and between patio bricks.

Design

Garden already consist of brick beds, paved path and gravel. My task was to revitalize the garden and make it more colourful, clean and tidy.

Crown reduction

There were 2 trees with crown overhanging the North wall. It had to be removed as it was shading off one of the beds.

Soil

Soil inside the beds was bone dry and lifeless. I’ve added fertilisers: dried chicken manure, rockdust and blood & bone meal. Every day I watered it heavily.

The plants selected for this garden were

  • Christmas box (Sarcococca hookeriana) Ghorepani
  • Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) Bombshell
  • Fuchsia Delta’s Sara
  • Arum Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica) Crowborough
  • Fuchsia Riccartonii

  • Aster Mönch, Patricia Ballard, White Ladies
  • Phlox (Phlox paniculata) Düsterlohe

All of them flower in different parts of the year, some are evergreen shrubs, some annual flowers. Majority of them also attract beneficial insects and most importantly bees.

Weeding

Last element was to remove weeds from the gravel areas, from between slabs and from front garden. I don’t use pesticides, so manually removed the big ones and used vinegar weed killer to spray the small ones.

After the weekend garden was looking much better.

Clearing Emily’s garden on E14 3AA

Emily garden - before clearing

Today I’ve worked on Harbinger Road, Isle of Dogs. The task was to do a garden clearance: tree pruning, lawn mowing,  weed removal and general tidy up.

Above you can see how garden looked before clearing: overhanging branches, tall grass with weeds, rubbish, bamboo growing over and through the fence.

And this is how it looked 8 hour later:

Email is working again

After yesterday’s switch of DNS servers the email stopped working.

Good news was that this site was now available under its own domain: permaradise.com

This caused problems in the system and my email stopped being redirected to correct mailbox. After reading some information on the web I’ve managed to find the culprit, remove it and add proper forwarding.

Not much of a gardening news but at least you can now contact us again.

Permaradise is online

Finally I’ve found some time to update this page.

I’ve added 2 basic pages: What we do and Contact us.

I’ve set up the domain to point to this location that should activate within next 30 hours.

Expect some progress in the near future: better design, improved content, some more blog posts.
