Garden development

Gardens don’t stay still. That’s one of the things I love about them. They are living and breathing environments, differing from season to season and year to year. An important job of the gardener is to influence this development, where necessary, by:

  • improving upon planting layout and combinations,
  • introducing new plants,
  • renovating old plants,
  • thinking of ways to enhance what’s there.

Small changes to the planting of a garden can make a real difference year-round to the overall aesthetic and feel.

With the right choice of plants you can, for example,  have year round colour and interest in the garden.

Similarly, changes and improvements to the planting can be made with wildlife in mind. Your garden can become a healthy, vibrant ecosystem and one you will share with beneficial and beautiful pollinating insects.

 

 

Or perhaps you are hoping to make your garden more ‘low maintenance’. With the correct choice of plants this can be easily achieved.

I am a firm believer in the ‘right plant, right place’ principle, and can find planting  solutions for any demanding areas of your garden. Dry shade, for example, or thin, chalky soil.
