The Olive Revisited
We return to South Devon to see how the olive tree which we helped to plant last year with Urban & Rural plants has fared over the winter.
The final part of the olive tree story can now be told. Last year we followed the story of an ancient olive tree as it made its way to its final planting position in a beautiful location on the south Devon coast. Despite all the horrendous weather over recent months Lee McKie and his landscape team from Urban & Rural Plants in Exeter have completed most of the main landscape project for their client. 

Impressive Focal Point

 

The olive tree formed part of the garden designed by Sue Fisher and it has certainly created an impressive focal point in the front garden plus being a great place to sit in the shade during long hot summer days or watch the evening sun go down over the estuary.


These images show the tree with the new low wall and planting scheme now in place giving the client the sense of being in a Mediterranean location.
 
For a recap on the journey of this olive tree, see the videos below.
