Making a Front Garden — 25 Comments

  1. What a lovely thing to do for your neighbor. The planting looks fabulous, and you get to enjoy it also from your window.. I hope you don;t mind me reading your garden blog.. I came across you from Helene Taylor who I enjoy following, Helene has given me so great tips for planting in my own garden.

  2. What a marvelous thing! Through your generous nature you’ve done a kind thing for your neighbor while also beautifying your own world. Great job.

  3. What a kind thoughtful neighbour you are Alistair. I’ll bet both gardens are the talk of the town now. I think gardeners make great neighbours and you’ve proved my theory correct.

  4. Hello Alistair, I can definitely see your style in your neighbour’s garden. I really like the combined photo at the end showing the two front gardens together, it really shows that the whole is more than the sum of the parts. I hope both you and Hillary are very satisfied and happy with the results!

    • Hi Sunil, Its one thing constantly trying to make improvements to your own garden. Not so sure if I welcome these thoughts of needing to make improvements to another.

    • Hi Pam, its not so long ago I was telling Hillary not to concern herself with maintenance as I would keep it looking good. You just never know whats around the corner.

  5. Hello Alistair, nice job you have done, and a great selection of plants you chose. I have done something similar where I used to live before and it is so satisfying to see the improvements – especially when you, like me were watching the neighbouring garden every day. I hope someone will be able to take care of your work for the future? In my case the neighbour died shortly afterwards after having been ill for many years, new people moved in and they didn’t want to take care of the garden but didn’t want any help either. Needless to say I felt rather sad looking over the low fence at the wilting, dying garden I spent 5 months creating and which I had put 95 plants of mine into. It’s true as you say; you never know what’s around the corner.

  6. I always notice when neighbours’ front gardens look well together. It is so much more satisfying to the eye. What a great job you’ve done on Hillary’s garden. Are you on the move again? I am very confused!

  7. Oh, I would love to have you as my neighbor! Great job, Alistair! I understand what a challenge is to deal with tree roots – I have the same problem in my own garden. It limits the variety of plants we can use and it stunts their growth. Anyway, you’ve done an excellent job!
