All Change at South Newington

Banbury Gardeners have been providing long-term garden maintenance and lawn treatment services to this garden for a good while now and the original garden was looking rather tired and overgrown. We have been carrying out further new planting works to the garden and adding features to reduce the maintenance where possible. See the enclosed gallery of garden changes. New low maintenance planting to be added in January and February 2019. Come back soon to see the changes.
