Hi, We have tenants in our family home while we are off dairy farming. The house is located in a residential street in Dargaville. Contact Adrianne Astley Roper and Jones for access for quoting and work in the first instance. Please send quote to us. Access to the front garden is from the road, or front vehicle turn-around area; and the rear garden via the side driveway. The back yard has a courtyard around the house and an upper terrace accessed via an earth ramp (foot access/wheelbarrow access only) The yard has extensive amenity, shelter and fruiting trees which require a careful prune to maintain shelter, branch structure for fruiting, shade and privacy. The tenants haven't the experience necessary to prune particularly the fruit trees.
We would like all prunings mulched onsite onto the existing gardens 1. Rear terrace - shape prune fruit trees to promote fruiting - we have pruned these as dwarfs in the past (plum, apple, peach, feijoa, guava, sweet orange); prune shelter planting to thicken up (pittosporum, orchard bamboo, coprosma,); tidy prune for access. 2. Rear house courtyard - canopy shape prune kowhai, jacaranda, olive, albizzia (only if need it otherwise leave); remove Albizzia in the brick planter and stump paint; side trim Griselinia boundary hedge.
Feijoa/guava hedge alongside entry deck to main door needs a good shear to maintain shape against edge of deck. 3. North drive side boundary trees - shape prune only, but maintain shade, shelter and privacy function. Albizzia, Olive. Crown lift Pohutukawa. Front garden - Trim to create denser shrubs - Hibiscus, akeake, Viburnum Fruit tree - citrus and peach need pruning for fruit promotion (hard on peach) Check canopy height in relation to power lines. Front bank is a good place to fire the mulched prunings. Not on quote anything else you notice requiring work, note as extra. Cheers Andrew and Lyn
