Planting for Resale

Having read the article on Caroline’s career as a Landscape designer, recently published in the Career Section of the New Zealand Herald, a Half Moon Bay couple contacted Caroline Wesseling Landscapes to “spruce up” their garden with the view to putting the property on the market in a very short space of time.

Within a few days the planting plan was finalized and plants ordered.Caroline Wesseling LandscapesCaroline Wesseling Landscapes

A Mediterranean theme was used to connect with the existing planting and make the garden water efficient and low maintenance for the new owners or the existing owners if the sale of the property was not successful.

Plants used in the back yard complement those already used in the front gardens giving uniformity in the theme and style of the garden, continuing with the low maintenance and low water plants with a Mediterranean feel.

The easy care Fan Palm was used as a repeating plant through the garden. This technique gives the garden uniformity of theme.
