We experience so many different and exciting situations in our gardens. Identifying and colonising these successfully with plants is what gardening is about and every garden can be home to a sustainable community of plants.

Once your garden is ready for planting, we can provide a customised selection of plants and a simple placement plan for where to put everything.

Below are some examples of planting concepts which consider the relationship between plants and their surroundings. Regardless of scale, these principles – light, soil, exposure, context – are what help guide you, and us, to create gardens that work for you and your tastes, and which make sense in the wider environment. 

To create a custom planting plan, we will need:

some photos of the space, some simple measurements of the beds to be planted, the aspect, type of soil and a sense of what you like.
