moray, United Kingdom
i have a large rockery which we pulled everything out of because it was all overgrown.it is on a slope so i need membrane on it first and probably about 50 plants and loads of bark. i have had 2 quotes so far .one for ,wait for it £2,800 another for £2,100,which to me is just crazy.it is a large area but the prices gardeners charge in this neck of the woods is unreal. i thought if i get someone to lay the membrane i will buy and plant myself.has anyone done this ,i would like mostly blues,green and purple a little pink,all evergreen and some height in it as well.could anyone give me advice. i heard you get miniature rhodendrons and azaleas also dwarf hostas.do you think slugs would be deterred by bark. i am new to this will have to get some photos once i have sussed it all out.
