When the hard landscaping has been completed and the ‘bones’ of the garden are in place, it is time to show off the beauty of the garden design by installing trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, bulbs and turf, otherwise known as soft landscaping.
The installation of the trees, larger shrubs, and herbaceous plants soften the hard-landscaping elements and give a sense of flow and direction around the garden. The trees and larger shrubs give structure and add height whilst the lower planting give a variety of shapes, colours, smells and textures.
As part of our soft landscaping service, we provide:
- Tree, shrub, bulb and herbaceous planting
- Shrub border regeneration
- Quality grade screened topsoil to BS3882
Our soft landscaping service can be an integral part your garden design package or can be provided as a ‘stand-alone’ service.
Soft landscaping offers you the following benefits:
A planting plan designed to suit your garden
It is essential that plants are chosen to suit conditions in your own garden. In order to thrive each plant must be chosen to suit its exact location within your garden. Soil PH, soil structure, aspect and drainage all have to be considered.
A planting plan designed to support local wildlife
Many people gain a huge amount of enjoyment from encouraging wildlife into their garden. We can advise you on a planting scheme which will support insects, wild birds and other local wildlife.
