Frequently Asked Questions

Step 1: Send Micheal images of your garden from as many angles as possible. Please supply exact measurements and ideally have something like a ladder in the images to provide a scaled reference point. Don’t forget to measure the ladder exactly.

Hint – to get the height place a ladder / timber length and look from your view points e.g. patio area, kitchen window and measure the suitable height. Do you need evergreen or deciduous?
