Hot garden debates for the cold months
At Town and Country Gardens, we love a good horticultural debate. Pondering the answers to life’s gardening questions keeps us passionate about our work and gives us something to ponder while we do some of your garden maintenance in Chiswick. We’re always pleased to hear new opinions on any topic.
Here are just two of the most fiercely contested topics. The gardening gloves are often off when it comes to talking these through!
Keep on raking – or not?
Justifying a minimalist approach when it comes to working in the garden has become something of a trend in recent years. It has caused people to rethink tasks that seemed essential not long ago. Raking leaves is one of these.
The arguments in favour of raking are that leaves can block the light to your lawn and cause damp or bald patches. It can also prevent you doing vital reseeding in preparation for spring. However, it can be a lot of work and, unless you have a huge leaf problem, it rarely creates the problems that most people fear.

If a flickering fire appeals to you, there are a number of options Town and Country Gardens can offer when you choose us for landscape gardening in Richmond. We can build a feature that incorporates a fire, such as a fire pit
