Does your garden need an overhaul but you don't know where to start?
Are you looking for help to redesign your garden without the expense of detailed drawings?
Would you like year round colour and interest?
We can help you to imagine, conceptualise, bring alive through drawings and design a garden space that is reflective of who you are. We are experts on extending the season to year round colour and interest. If desired we can design a multi layered garden full of fruit, herbs, flowers and perennial vegetables, known as a forest garden or food forest.
As permaculture practitioners, our advice values the ecology of the garden and looks to increase biodiversity alongside creating beautiful planting schemes.
We offer a bespoke garden consultancy service that is tailored to your needs to give professional and impartial advice on how your garden can be improved.
What does a consultation involve?
This is a bespoke service as we realise that every client has differing needs and expectations, this ensures we can help you to get the most out of your consultation.
During the consultation, held in your own garden, we will ask questions and provide ideas and solutions to any of your gardening issues, always keeping the ecology of the garden in mind with any suggested changes and improvements.
We can assist you to turn your ideas into a reality and create a beautiful garden for the long term rather than a temporary quick fix or undertaking unnecessary landscaping. We believe in working with your garden conditions as they are rather than against them, after all there is a plant for every situation.
We can help you to identify the plants, shrubs and trees within your garden and explain how best to maintain them giving suggestions on areas to be improved.
