Our Planting Schemes
Planting schemes form an increasing part of our work. Often they are linked to our landscaping projects, or sometimes clients just want existing parts of the garden refreshed or improved.
Our planting schemes contain carefully considered selections of plants and bulbs. These are chosen ensuring they are appropriate to the site conditions and the needs of the customer. Some clients want their scheme to provide all year round colours and some prefer a traditional spring or summer display. Others want something different, like a lush forest feel or perhaps a coastal or alpine garden. Examples of some of our planting schemes can be seen in the Gallery and on our Facebook page.
Working With You to Design a Scheme
We always start by discussing your individual needs and what you are looking to spend on plants and materials. You may have definite ideas of what you would like or you might appreciate some advice and guidance. We then look at colour preferences and your personal likes and dislikes. If you have pets we can make sure we choose animal-friendly plants, and if your garden is affected by rabbits, persistent winds or salty air then we take all this into account. Soil structure is also important, although it can always be changed to accommodate preferred species.
Once your scheme is complete and you are happy with it we can leave you to enjoy it. We are always happy to return to a planting project to see how it is flourishing or to help with its maintenance.
