Plant Maintenance Consultancy
We offer advice verbally, or write detailed maintenance plans as suits your requirements.
Are you a competent gardener and/or DIY’er and want to do most of the work yourself? In which case why not take advantage of our Design Advice Service? – this is an ad hoc consultancy service, allowing you seek the ideas and advice from a professional designer as and when you need it.
If you don’t want a whole garden design, but your planting is looking tired and drab why not let us bring the life back into your garden with a fabulous new planting scheme? If you wish we can organise the entire job from start to finish.
We have experience of submitting planning applications for landscaping (including Conservation Areas, and within the curtilage of listed properties), land-use changes, tree-work/felling applications, etc.
Design of Bespoke Garden Buildings, Gates & Furniture – we have experience in designing bespoke features for the garden. Our craftsmen’, engineers’ and the trades’ contacts can help you turn our designs into reality.
The Design Process
Please take a look at my design services which detail site visits and surveys, design and project administration plus plant supply and planting followed by maintenance plans if required…
When we bought our new-build house, the garden was a ‘blank canvas’ – in other words, an unappealing expanse of scrappy lawn and fence with absolutely terrible soil! I was daunted by the prospect of trying to create an entire garden from scratch; I had a few ideas about the kind of garden I wanted, but no idea at all how to bring those ideas to life. Thank goodness for Helen! A great listener, she ‘got’ the brief right from the outset and delivered a design that was visually stunning, and worked from a practical point of view as well. A very knowledgeable plantswoman, she recommended many wonderful varieties that were new to me, and which would thrive in our very challenging soil conditions. As importantly, she project-managed the entire process, and we were really happy with the contractors and suppliers she recommended. The whole project ran incredibly smoothly and, at the end of it, we have a stunning garden that looks great throughout the year. In the first summer after planting, nobody believed that our garden was less than 12 months old.
