Mini Makeover Lift for Barbara and Mick in Hastings
Barbara and Mick recently retired to a house with no garden in Hastings. They have begun planting their garden up and are trying to achieve an attractive low maintenance garden. In the front in the porch area, where they sit under the veranda, it looked a bit flat so we decided to place two striking pots and plants there. We chose two tall ripple pots in brilliant green dappled with black streaks and we planted two large silver/grey giant Agave into them. Agave have a very structural look and gave the garden a strong focal point.
My idea when decorating an area with pots is to use large visually exciting pots and plants that really make a statement. Too many small pots can create a cluttered look with no real impact.
Barbara was excited that they won the garden makeover as Mick had a massive heart attack a year ago, and since then they have had a tough time where they have had to completely reorganise their lives from working in their own real estate business to retirement and a carer’s roll. But this week Barbara felt their luck had changed as they won Burgos bunch for lunch and then a Chris & Marie’s mini makeover. Barbara and Mick are a lovely couple, we enjoyed our visit, our morning tea and the makeover and we hope their luck has changed.
