When it comes to your home, you need to make sure that every part of it looks the best it can be. And why wouldn’t you? The house is your space where you can be you and furnish it with your unique tastes and ideas. Your garden is no different in this respect. The garden is part of who you are, and what you believe to be important. However, you need to make sure that no matter what, you’re getting a garden which is practical and feasible. With that in mind, do you need a professional to help you design it?
A well-planned garden design should reflect the personal style and your needs, but it should also give the garden a sense of belonging within its surroundings. It is essential for a garden to complement your home and the location in which you live, connecting with both the landscape as well as the hardscape. One of our recent garden designs ticks all those boxes. While updating the gardens style, it still harmonised with old style of the property.

So, you didn’t get around to planting bulbs last Autumn ready for this Spring, or perhaps it didn’t even cross your mind. While an avid gardeners’ Autumn was jam packed with seasonal chores, yours was occupied with other pressing things.
Rain is not something we’re short of here, especially not in April. You could deliver mains water through sprinklers or hoses and your plants would not look as good or be as healthy as when the same amount of water, in the form of rain, feeds them. Take full advantage of this free and natural resource that we have.

Doing some spring planting is all well and good, but you need to make sure that you’ve taken all of the various factors into consideration.
