It was an amazing sight when the lorry and JCB with the hoists arrived at our driveway, ready to deliver and plant the 80 trees that we had ordered from Zuaimes Garden Center Caniles. After yearning for it for so long, we were finally planting the trees that would bring life to our large, barren piece of land. We had handpicked a range of trees to blend in with the Andalucian surroundings, but we were particularly excited about having some palms around the swimming pool area, to bring a touch of the Mediterranean to our holidays at Cuevas Helena. The 80 trees were planted within a single day – and with the help of a water irrigation system, which is set to run on a timer, we can now look forward to the summer months without having to worry about the trees surviving the intense heat. We are both delighted with the result – the tree line is exactly what we had always hoped for.
