PLANTING.

Garden planting to complement your lifestyle

Some clients know instinctively which type of plants and look they want; others are less sure. If you haven’t a clue I will offer ideas and suggestions with photos or illustrations to help you decide. For example, do you prefer: structural or soft, architectural or country, floral or leafy, colourful or green, modern or traditional, formal or informal, exotic or cottage, minimal or abundant. These photos might help you pinpoint what you like or don’t like.
