PLANTING DESIGN

Sussex Country Garden Planting Design Year 2

The planting design service that I offer is for existing spaces, whether this means stripping everything out and starting with a clean slate or working with existing planting to create more interest and better balance.

Often it’s not the material structure of an outside space that needs changing but rather the planting within that space.  It’s not unusual, for example, to inherit a garden that isn’t to one’s liking when moving into a new house, and this is precisely where a fresh approach and new planting scheme can make all the difference, and at a fraction of the cost of hard-landscaping.

 

The design process is one of collaboration; it is, afterall, your garden and not mine, therefore I don’t try to dictate what your garden should contain but rather I help to guide you through the options and explain how plants grow and respond in certain environments and in relation to one another.  I like to get to know each client and to ascertain their likes and dislikes as I believe that this ultimately produces the best result.

I will provide you with a scale drawing of the finished plan but will also show you my workings as I go; photographs of plants and styles are put together using Pinterest on your own ‘board’ which means it’s easy for you to sit and look through the ideas and get a feel for the plant options.  You will also be given a complete plant list and flower chart which shows exactly what your garden will contain and what you can expect to be in flower at different times of the year.
