Plant schemes

There are certain key elements we look at first to create a successful planting scheme – one is to know your plot (from soil type to orientation and prevailing weather conditions), and the other to create a style that pleases you, be it romantic cottage garden, billowing prairie drifts, damp-loving bog garden or a series of tropical ‘hot’ borders. Plants can be used to provide year round interest, to be low maintenance or to disguise unwanted features in your garden (such as an ugly neighbouring building or an oil tank). Equally planting can be used to enhance selected aspects of the garden, such as framing a view or using rose-covered posts and ropes to highlight a change in level. Again, we often work with one of our garden design partners to offer you a bespoke planting scheme, tailored to your outdoor space.
