I am wanting to plant Coleonema Sunset Gold and would like to know if this is the right time to plant? They will get the full sun and the strong winds.

We rent a property with a lovely flat lawn of approx 400sqm. We don’t have too many issues with prickles like onehunga weed but the lawn is very weedy with lots of clover. I know it won’t be perfect but i’d like to try and get it a bit healthier without spending a fortune. Can you advise what the best few things to do would be? I have just done an all over spray on Weed & Feed. What should I do next?

I have a terrace bed supported by an ugly concrete wall. I am looking for a plant to crawl across the concrete edge and trail down the wall a bit. The plant needs to have attractive evergreen foliage, able to withstand very strong southerly winds sometimes. The terrace bed gets a lot of sun, so the plant base will get full sun, but any leaves that trail down the wall will be in a south-facing shady area. The bed is irrigated. The main problem is very strong wind sometimes.

I’m looking to put in a lavender hedge both sides of our footpath to highlight the entrance to our house, can you recommend a suitable lavender plant that is suited to a Wellington south coast garden (the path runs east-west and gets good sun). We want a hedge about 40-50cm high when fully grown and a good flowering variety as well. Any recommendations please?

I have an area around my raised vege garden that I would like to put into pebbles/ stones…..This would be replacing grass. Does this need to be sprayed first, or can 5 cm just be taken and then a matting material be placed before the stones are put down ?

Hi there, Can you purchase plants that are appropriate for privacy hedges that are already high enough not to be able to see over?? Thanks

We have just bought a house with a small back lawn that had ready lawn laid. The grass hasn’t taken to the soil and is extremely fine, even just light raking of garden leaves pulls up masses of grass. It’s like a mat sitting on top that doesn’t penetrate into the soil at all. Any ideas how we can fix it. We have had suggestions of killing it and starting again, can we just put new grass seed in and hope it thickens up?

I’m looking for a row of small grasses or flaxes to populate a narrow garden in a sunny spot. Something 25cm HxW would be ideal. All the carex, lomandra, libertia, phormium options I’ve looked at so far seem to get a bit tall. Open to any foliage colour, native would be nice but not essential. Ideas?

We are contemplating buying a brand new house where the grounds have been landscaped. We noticed the front lawn, which has new grass sown, is quite soft and spongy. I have been told that this is because the new grass still has to build up a solid root system into the soil which would compact it and make it more solid. Is this correct or is it more likely to be drainage problems?

Hi team, we’re on a crosslease; our nieghbour has recently put up a pergola which, while it meets the consent requirements, is 300 mm from the shared fence and a bit under 3 metres tall. From our side its not a good look and I’m seeking advice on how to screen it off or at least soften it. Our common fence runs roughly east-west and we are on the south side of it, so its fairly shady. I’m looking at maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 metre trellis topped off with a climber that will screen for as much of the year as possible. Any ideas would be very welcome. Advice on whether I can atach the trellis directly to the existing (post and paling, good condition) fence or if I need to put new posts on our side would be very useful, too. Thanks in advance.
