Your Garden

One of the main features of your garden is the planting within it.

It’s what makes us gardeners and makes us want to be out enjoying the fruits of our labour.

Our Specialities

We specialise in planting design and layout. We don’t do full planting plans as such because if we specify certain plants they may not be available, so we tend to go with a plant budget and go from there. We will certainly advise on what you need to budget for, to make it right.

We use our experience to assess the style of planting you require whether it be formal, informal, cottage style etc.

Training and Experience

Darragh is a fully trained horticulturist from Writtle College in Essex, England and has 25 years’ experience in horticulture and gardening so he knows what works and what will work for you.

The Process

Whether you are planting a new garden, resurrecting an old garden back to life or adding to an established garden we can offer great assistance to you.

Generally, if your garden needs to be replanted, we will start with the soil and conditioning of – this requires digging over, feeding and manuring the soil giving a great basis to start again

We will assess your existing garden, discuss your planting requirements with you. After this, we will meet you in the nursery and walk through your requirements. This is an invaluable resource as all the plants are in front of you. Be aware though, it’s like kids in a sweet shop. but it is fun.

After all the plants are picked, we’ll organise the delivery of the plants, lay them out, get your approval, plant and mulch. Then you watch your newly planted garden flourish.

All we ask you to do is to water initially. This will get you outside and is an enjoyable part of the process otherwise we can care and maintain your newly planted garden for you.

Each and every planting design and layout is bespoke to you and your garden.
