Plants and planting
Planning the perfect palette of colours for your garden is a priority. The hard landscaping is vital, but the plants are the soft furnishings - the things that make all the difference; the art, the sofas and the books of the garden.
When it all comes together and you start to see trees being carried, or craned, onto site, it's a magical and exciting time. The plants will all be installed for you, ready to make a huge impact in the years to come. Each garden needs plants that grow well in the climate and weather conditions. If you're near the sea or in a windy, exposed site it's important that each chosen plant can withstand the elements. Your soil type, whether acid or alkaline needs to be taken into consideration and the eventual height and maintenance of shrubs must be evaluated too.
Mature trees make a big impact in a new garden and we work with local nurseries and also source from Italy and Holland. We can find any size of tree or hedge to create an instant screen and provide privacy where needed.
New sites and house-builds also need a sense of longevity and stability and mature shrubs help here too.
Your colour preferences and plant loves will be taken into consideration - if you don't feel confident about plants then we'll help you every step of the way. We can also offer a full maintenance service, looking after your new garden for years to come.
Louisa can also help you to choose pots, furniture, cushions, lanterns and all those outdoor things that girls do so well.
