Planting Design

Plants and trees bring a garden design to life. They offer the perfect softening balance to the strong lines created by high quality patios, paths, swimming pools and outdoor lounge and dining areas. At this stage of the garden design journey plant expertise is critical to designing and choosing the best plant and tree palette for your garden.

Expert planting design

Our Planting Plans utilise our expert knowledge of thousands of plants and years of experience to create the best planting scheme for your new garden.

Complete garden re-designs usually include a Planting Plan but we also provide plans for renovation of existing garden borders. Our designs are easy to understand, scaled at 1:50 and include a full list of plants, size and a soil preparation and planting specification.

All of the trees and plants that we supply are sourced from some of the best UK plant nurseries, who also supply RHS flower shows.

Garden design aftercare that works

Colourful thumbnail images help our clients to recognise and learn about the new plants in their garden and our valuable web based Shoot Gardening maintenance system will keep you up to date with how to care for your garden.

For larger gardens, usually more than an acre, we also provide Quarterly Garden Reviews with you and your gardener to give you on-going direction in your garden as it develops.

Quality plant and tree installation

The trees and plants for your garden bring your garden to life, creating a perfect foil for expertly installed landscaping. We select all trees and plants for gardens that we design.

We liaise with your landscaping team to ensure that plants arrive and are carefully planted straight away, that semi-mature trees are delivered carefully to site and staked or anchored carefully and professionally.

We work with expert lighting and irrigation specialists to ensure that beautiful feature plants and trees within your garden look great after dark too, bringing evening drama and atmosphere into your garden.
