There are a variety of ways in which we can help you with planting in your garden.
- Planting after a design and hard landscaping have been completed
- Re- designing and planting of existing borders
- Regeneration of existing borders
- Creating new borders within a garden
- Supply plants
- Planting plans
We will arrange to have a chat about the planting in your garden.
At this meeting we will discuss the level of gardening you will be doing; how much maintenance you want; whether you will be employing a gardener or if you want regular maintenance work done.
We’ll discuss the type of plants you would like and what you want the finished garden to look like taking into account the seasons, the soil type, the amount of sun the borders have and whether its sheltered or exposed. We will show you examples of borders I have already created.
We will discuss a budget with you as this will affect the size and maturity of plants you will have.
If new borders need to be created we will arrange to include this work in the budget estimate.
Once you give the go ahead I will plan the borders, give you a final cost for the work and arrange for the planting to take place.
My plants are sourced from local wholesale nurseries so they are more competitive than garden centre costs.
Delivery charges for the plants maybe applied dependent upon volumes. This will be included in the cost of the plants.
For an extra cost we can produce a full planting plan with all the Latin names of the plants labeled on it. I produce a final copy of this after the planting has been completed.
The advantages of a planting plan
- You can identify plants where they are in the border if you get asked and you don’t have to memorise the plants’ names.
- You will be able to maintain the plant properly as you will know what the plant is and can look up maintenance regimes on the internet or in books.
- You will be able to discuss the plants with your gardener and arrange the correct maintenance regime.
Below is an example of a planting plan.
