Orchard Wall & Gate

Credentials.  Every element designed.  My general contractor had the audacity to ask if I sited the daffodils.
Receiving my gimlet eye, no words, he quickly backed away a couple of feet.  Literally.


I was at the jobsite this month siting the newest layer of plantings.  The guys loaded them from the grower, above, early in the morning.  My contractor spent over a week sourcing them.


Caterpillar had to be used to move each plant.  Planting holes had to be dug by hand due to electric/gas/water.
.
I staked location flags for the load of plants then zipped the acreage shooting the pics you've seen the past several days.

Some of 'the guys'.  Hardworking, pleasant, humble.  Without them, no gardens.

Considering the top pic for a logo.  Still amazed every element is designed, newly built/installed, yet Jane Austen rustic.  Everyone got it right.

The gate is charming with the brick. I can see why you're taken with it.

What an ambitious project. 'S wonderful that you were chosen instead of some hack who might screw things us.
