Well-chosen planting adds layers of changing seasonal colour and interest to a garden, but it is also fundamental to the success of a design – reinforcing its structure, adding screening, creating rhythm, drawing the eye.
We start by discussing with you any particular requirements and preferences you may have personally. Whether you know a little or a lot about plants is immaterial! We will work with you to incorporate your ideas and realise your vision – whether you have a liking for particular colours, a need for low maintenance, a wish to attract wildlife or a desire for scented or sensory plants.
Assessing the prevailing garden conditions and completing a soil analysis helps us to ensure that the plants we select are suited to the site conditions and therefore most likely to thrive.
From here we develop the PLANTING SCHEME which we present as a scale drawing, detailing all of the plant species and varieties required (together with quantities) and setting out the positions in which they are to be planted.
