6. Planting the Landscaped Garden
We are a small planting team experienced in all aspects of plant handling and planting. Our Detailed Masterplan drawings include all plant names, quantities and positions, being an integral part of any design.
We will design to your preferred garden colour schemes. Consideration is given to the character of the garden design, native wildlife, ecological value of the garden and sustainability.
Architectural planting is simple and unfussy.
It is generally very low maintenance and can be enhanced with bulb planting to add colour and seasonal interest. Large specimen plants can be used to give immediate impact in the new landscaped garden.
Larger plants can be used for a more immediate impact.
Autumn colour and texture can be incorporated into the planting design with strongly architectural seed heads and grasses. Many different shrubs have subtle flowers to add interest throughout the year including some amazing fragrance. Bulbs flower throughout the year, not just in Spring, and planted in large quantities look great.
Cottage Garden Planting
Cottage garden style planting fills this outside patch which borders the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire.
The garden also incorporated a vegetable patch and fruit trees. Cottage style planting consists of blocks of perennials. The client's favourite colours form the main colour scheme for the planting design.
Large Scale Garden Planting
Large blocks of strongly coloured planting create a strong impact on this very large garden.
Existing trees and specimen shrubs are retained and incorporated into the planting design where they enhance the overall garden design. On the far right: planting is carried out in a garden near Wetherby, Yorkshire.
Pleach Tree Planting
We source, plant and specially train the trees to create a 'pleached' hedge to ultimately form a semi-enclosed dining area, as seen in this example photo of a new garden in Headingley.
The timber structure supports the young trees and is removed after a few years. The outdoor dining area with the cool, still pool looks fabulous. The pleach trees are underplanted with iris which bring striking colour in late Spring.
Planting Plans and Plant Supply
Planting Plans & 'Plant Your Own'.
We prepare comprehensive planting plans for gardens of all sizes. We supply and plant or if you prefer, you may wish to plant your garden yourself. Our hedging plants and native trees are from a local Yorkshire nursery which use locally harvested seed before being grown on. Our shrubs, herbaceous plants, ornamental trees and bulbs are selected from various UK plant nurseries.
Any specimen ornamental trees and shrubs are selected and collected from various local plant nurseries as we always hand select these plants. We can also provide large quantities of plants on a 'supply only' basis for you to plant up yourselves.
