Garden layout advice
If you would like some advice about the layout of your garden, whether that’s how to reinvent an existing space to make it work for you, or the best way to tackle a problem area such as a steep slope or shady patch, I can help. I will come and visit your garden, spend an hour discussing the garden or specific area in question, and then produce a written report with my recommendations. You then have a copy of this report to keep and refer to. Depending on your requirements, it may include information such as soil improvement techniques, plant recommendations and where to site new borders.
Support for gardening newbies
New to gardening and not sure how to care for your plants and tackle your outdoor space? I can provide you with a report which outlines what to do with your plants and at what times of year, including caring for herbaceous plants and how to prune shrubs. This will also include a visit to your garden and practical demonstrations, where appropriate.
Planting and border design service
If you would like to add new life to a specific area of your garden, I offer a border design service. This will involve a site visit to meet you and understand your requirements, likes and dislikes, while also taking measurements, assessing soil ph and understanding the condition of your soil. I will only specify plants that are hardy and I know will do well in your locality, as well as the specific area you have in mind; whether that’s dry shade, full sun, dappled woodland or a wildlife-prone area.
