We offer a professional and personalised service led by RHS Gold medal winning Garden and Landscape Designer Joanne Kennedy.


New Online Planting Service

We can now offer an online planting service.

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 and 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 it’s sheltered or exposed. We will show you examples of borders we have already created.

We will discuss a budget with you as this will affect the size and maturity of the 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 we 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 may be applied dependent upon volumes. This will be included in the cost of the plants.

Planting Plans

For an extra cost we can produce a full planting plan with all the Latin names of the plants labeled on it. We produce a final copy of this after the planting has been completed.

The advantages of a planting plan

  • Identify plants and their position in the border.
  • Allows you to care for the plants correctly.
  • Discuss the plants with your gardener and arrange the correct maintenance regime.

Below is an example of a planting plan.

  • “I approached Garden Blueprints with a selection of garden features that appealed to m e and which were to be incorporated into a design for a small garden space. The size was quite challenging.

    Though consultation during a number of visits, Joanne’s interpretation and final design more than exceeded my expectations. In short, she oversaw all the arrangements from original concept to finished project and even ‘matched’ my taste to a landscape gardener that she felt would work well with me to deliver the desired result.”

    Mrs K Whitehurst

  • “Joanne spent time with us discussing our ideas for the transformation of our garden. She came up with a plan which became the perfect answer for our needs. Her sympathetic planting and garden design has been for us an ongoing delight. I would certainly recommend you to others.”

    Mr B & Mrs J Greet

  • “Thank you so much for doing my garden today Joanne. I really so appreciate it. It looks fabulous.”

    Mrs D Russell

  • “Jo, thanks for designing and planting our garde. It’s fabulous and we love it!”

    Mrs M & Mr D Kent

  • “Dear Joanne, many many thanks for making my garden so beautiful and so easy when I do some gardening. Regards.”

    Mrs P Knight

  • “Sorry I was not home when you came to plant my garden but I have to tell you I am delighted with the results, love the trees and all the plants and shrubs. Can’t wait for next year to see all the colours.”
