Shirley is the owner of this garden which illustrates the dangers of being in real estate. Through her work she sees a number of homes and gardens, and from time to time, Shirley discovers a property that she can transform.
When she purchased this1960's cottage 2 years ago, it was a blank canvas and had a garden that was sparse and unloved. The gardens were bare, there were 2 cherry trees and a rotten back fence. The weeping cherry died, so an artistic twist has been designed leaving a reminder to its past beauty.
The first step in the rejuvenation of the property was a year long house renovation, and this spring has been the turn of the garden.
With the assistance of Lee Barton (Landscaper) and Amber Garden Centre (plants), this garden transformation is a testament to what can be done with careful planting, garden art and strategic pathing and building.
