Winner of 2014 Residential Landscape Maintenance
This project was awarded 2014 Residential Landscape Maintenance by Landscape Newfoundland and Labrador Awards of Landscape Excellence.
Bowering Gardens has been maintaining this property for more than 5 years. On average, the team visits 2 times per week. During each visit, regular maintenance tasks are performed including, mowing, pruning, edging, weeding and planting. Fertilizing and liming, hardscape installation and pond maintenance are also among the common chores as well.
Particular emphasis is made to ensure careful colour balance throughout the seasons. Spring tulips planted the previous fall are in bloom with the crab apple trees and rhododendrons. In the fall, burning bush and Japanese maple come to the forefront accented by chrysanthemums.
The clients top priorities are having a tidy landscape with constant colour interest particularly pastels. Having twice weekly maintenance visits allows the client to entertain at any given time. She is very pleased with the service we provide.
The north east side of the house required particular attention from us this year. It was a shady wet side with inadequate drainage where it was difficult to maintain the turf. Although residents and guests did not use this path, propane delivery and heat pump maintenance occurs on this side of the house. We decided to transform it into a low maintenance pea stone path with inlaid flagstone. By adding mini limestone monoliths in moss islands and in-house constructed hypertufa troughs we created a new point of interest that the client now likes to show off!
