Our interests.

 

Bed and Borders. 


Herbacious Perennials, Annuals, Biennials and Bedding plants provide colour and interest; planted to formal effect, carpets of colour, baskets, containers or in more informal mixed country cottage style effect the choices are endless. We can assist you in the planting, maintenance and seasonal tidying of such borders. 
 
 
  

Trees, Shrubs and Hedges 


Trees, Shrubs and Hedges provide stature, height, permanence, seasonal variation, noise and pollution filtering. Unskilled contractors often prune them into unnatural similar blobs and carry out ill timed pruning operations. We prune to maintain potential flowering or foliage displays. These perennials can help you achieve a low cost and attractive addition to your garden. 
 
 
Wildlife Gardening. 

We can help you achieve gardening which helps create and maintain biodiversity. Careful management of artificial environments is required to achieve abundant native flora and fauna capable of supporting diverse native species. Without management the dominant species may take hold limiting this diversity and encouraging an untidy unkempt appearance. For example; wildlife meadows are not created by simply not mowing. But instead by depleting soil fertility, following a disciplined mowing pattern at the right heights and introducing native species. Photo Copyright Peter Trimming licensed 4 reuse
