My 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 and 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 what to put where? Do you have an area of your garden where nothing seems to thrive no matter what you try?

I can help you with my bespoke planting design service. My full planting design service includes site survey, site analysis, preparation of planting proposal, plan(s), plant sourcing and planting. I 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 planting.

I pride myself in improving gardens. I am committed to developing and managing gardens long term. Therefore, in addition to offering planting design services, I also provide a complimentary garden management service to keep your new planting and your existing garden in good condition.

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

I advocate the composting of all garden waste on site; I feel this is a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to garden management and waste disposal. If you don’t already have a compost bin, I can construct one for you. If you still need me to dispose of your plant waste for you I will make a charge for each occasion.

In collaboration with local business, I am able to offer ‘one off’ garden tidy ups and clearances. Please contact me directly for pricing.

Garden maintenance

I can also undertake non-heavy duty landscaping services for you. I am an experienced RHS Level 3 trained and qualified gardener. Typical tasks I can undertake for you include:

  • Repairing wooden fencing or hurdles,
  • Constructing, repairing, staining or rejuvenating decking,
  • Raised bed building and repair,
  • Dry stone wall building and repair,
  • Trellis installation and repair,
  • Creating new paths (gravel or paved),
  • Compost bin construction.

Corten Steel garden furniture

I work with a lot of corten and galvanised steel in my designs: it is attractive, fitting with the agricultural landscapes and terracotta roofed buildings of this area, but most importantly it is also extremely durable.

I supply and install corten and galvanised plant containers, firebowls/pits/tables, garden fireplaces/chimneys/ovens, log stores, water bowls/tables and edging.
