Our Services

Planting DESIGN Service

Have you inherited a garden and are happy with its organisation and landscaped structure, but perhaps you find the existing planting uninspiring or not to your taste? You may feel that the planting in your garden is in need of modernising? Are you stuck for planting ideas or have no idea of what to put where? Do you have an area where nothing seems to thrive whatever you plant? We can help you with our bespoke planting design service.

Our full planting design service includes site survey, site analysis, preparation of planting proposal, plan(s), plant sourcing and planting. We can also prepare for you a bespoke maintenance schedule for your new planting, if you desire, for a small additional fee. Projects range from border overhauls and rejuvenation projects to creating areas of entirely new plantings.

Prices begin at 250 euros (excluding the cost of any materials/plants/supplies). Contact us for a personalised quote that is tailored to your project.

planting DESIGN service + garden management

At Le Jardin Contemporain we don’t like to maintain gardens simply for the sake of maintaining them and pride ourselves in improving gardens. We are committed to developing and managing gardens long term. Therefore, in addition to offering planting services, we also provide a complementary garden management service to keep your new planting, and the remainder of your existing garden, in good condition.

Horticultural services are provided by an experienced, Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Level 3 qualified gardener trained at Bristol University’s Botanical Gardens. Typical tasks we can help you with include:

  • Lawn mowing, aeration, over seeding and rejuvenation,
  • Weeding,
  • Pruning (deadheading, seasonal and rejuvenation),
  • Soil improvement and mulching,
  • Hedge cutting and rejuvenation,
  • Small tree and shrub pruning (crown raising, thinning of canopy, coppicing, rejuvenation, felling etc),
  • Specialist wisteria, and other climber, pruning and training,
  • Specialist espalier and fan pruning and training of fruit trees,
  • Pleaching and topiary shaping.

Prices begin at 250 euros for the initial planting design service described above (excluding the cost of any materials/plants/supplies) with prices for our follow up garden management service beginning at 25 euros per hour (excluding the cost of materials/plants/supplies). Contact us for a  personalised quote that is tailored to your project.

We advocate the composting of all garden waste on site; we feel this is a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to garden management and waste disposal. If you still need us to dispose of your garden waste for you, we will make an additional charge for each occasion.

In collaboration with local businesses, Le Jardin Contemporain is able to offer ‘one off’ garden clearances and tidy ups. Please contact us directly for pricing.
