PLANTING DESIGN SERVICES

If you just want to redesign a part of your garden or create a new bed, planting design can be a good option.

Plants are one of the most important features of a garden, determining the character, style, scents and the changing effects from season to season and year to year. There is an infinite number of ways of growing and combining ornamental plants and there are many thousands of readily available plants with which to plan a scheme.
