Today, we would like to introduce a case we had the other day about caring for the garden.
We manage the owner's second house and visit the local patrol once a month. At that time, we also check the postal items and visually check the outside of the building. As an option, we also perform ventilation work in the building, kitchen, toilets, washrooms, etc. to prevent the pipes from drying out and causing a bad odor to spread inside the building.
Meanwhile, the other day, when we were patrolling a building that manages a vacation house, we found that the planting in the garden had grown greatly and it was crossing the border with the neighboring land. Also, it has not been kept in good condition for a long time, the plants interfered with the sunlight, and there were some places where the light could not reach. As shown in the photo, there were some parts such as pine trees that were partially dead.
It's okay to leave it for a few months, but it's still annoying to the neighboring land, and if the condition of the plants is not improved, the garden will die more and more.
Therefore, this time we asked the gardener to check the current situation and gave us advice on what kind of maintenance is good. According to the contents, gardener said that it is better to perform basic pruning and light pruning twice a year. Since deciduous coniferous trees are resistant to cold, it is possible to perform basic pruning during the winter because the timing varies depending on the planting growing in the garden. And in order to get a good shape in a balanced manner, the gardener said that the proper time for light pruning is better from summer to autumn.

In addition, the gardener said that it is better to decide the time for basic pruning according to the type of planting in the garden. But for the light pruning work, it should be done at the convenience of the customer. For example, if the owner visits Japan during the autumn leaves change and asks them to check the condition of the garden, it would be good to have it around October. If the owner visits Japan during the cherry blossom season, it is better to take care of it just before coming to Japan, as it will make the owner happy.
This time, care was taken for a long time, so we asked them to work on cutting unnecessary planting too.
The planting in the garden has been refreshed, and there is no crossing of borders next to it. Also, the kind of planting that was not found in the original garden was cut and is in a very beautiful condition. According to the gardener, this time there is a block fence at the boundary, so when the owner looked outside from the room, the gardener designed it so that the block fence would be hidden just by planting. Since there is no line of sight from the window of the neighbor's house, leave the upper part empty to some extent and it will become warmer and the volume will come out along with the cultivation of the planting.
We would like the owner to come to Japan right now to check it out and see the beautiful new garden, but we would like them to come to Japan in the fall when things are more settled.
We can refer you to these gardeners, so if you would like to take care of your garden, please contact us.
