Some clients have a basic design that they are happy with but would like help with the finishing touches - the 'set dressing' of their outdoor areas. We can rejuvenate your garden introducing some new features and focal points, looking at ways to unify the space and connect it with the interior.
We will produce full planting plans as part of our main design service. These drawings include the plant numbers of each variety and their layout. The plants are then hand selected from our regular plant nurseries, delivered and positioned on site according to the plans. We can also plant everything as an additional service.
However you may not require a complete redesign, perhaps just a new scheme for an existing border or would you like to introduce some more seasonal variation to the garden. We can meet with you to discuss your requirements.
You may want some one off advice or an extended discussion about a particular area of you garden.
This service is particularly useful for people who want to have a go at rejuvenating their garden themselves but would like some professional advice or inspiration to inspire them or ensure that they are on the right track.
A one off consultation might also help plan future projects or assist with an architect's approach to the areas directly outside your home when building an extension.
Our Garden Packages are for clients who do not require a full redesign but who need some help to rejuvenate their garden, get more involved or have a specific project that they want to realise. Here are some examples of what we can offer -
Garden Face-lift - are you having a special event or party and would like a quick makeover of your terrace or front garden?
Pots and Planters - Are your window boxes and containers tired and neglected. We can redesign and plant a new scheme to instantly transform your house and garden.
Planting Bed Revamp - is there a particular area of the garden that needs a little TLC or perhaps you would like to create a new area of interest.
Styling - Lounging and dining areas are a wonderful opportunity to connect your house with the garden and carefully chosen furniture and accessories can create a stunning new area to relax and entertain.
Improve Your Skills - Would you like to get more involved with your garden? We can help introduce a maintenance schedule for your garden and guide you through the various requirements that your plants may have so that you can become more hands on in your own garden.
Kids Project - there are various ways which we can help get your kids to engage with the garden. Do they have a party coming up or would you like to create a corner especially for them? We can plant living willow dens, build bespoke playhouses, a nature weaving loom or a fairy garden....what can your kids come up with?!
These packages can be presented as a unique Birthday present or gift. If you have any other ideas or requests then perhaps we can help? Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
Living Willow Structures
Our Living Willow Sculptures are a wonderful addition to a garden, park or school. They are really quite robust once established and can be created in an array of forms - a den, tunnel, whale, fence, igloo, tepee, arbour, arch etc. They are planted in the winter months, when the willow is dormant, and then burst into leaf come the spring providing an instant green feature.
We specialise in creating bespoke playhouses to harmonize with your garden scheme. We can help you to decide the best place to locate the structure and advise on any screening that might help prevent it from dominating the site and blend in with the surroundings. The combination of interior and exterior finishes and furnishings are endless and the result will be a unique play area for your kids.
Perhaps you already have an existing playhouse and would like to update it for older children or give it a new lease of life?
We are passionate about Nature Play and aim to provide children with every opportunity to get outdoors and connect with their surrounding environment. This should be considered in every garden scheme where children will be using the area. We can offer various wonderful projects and structures which can be installed at schools and nurseries as well as in a domestic setting.
Please contact us for further details.
