We enhance and enrich gardens specifically to your needs. Examples include full planting schemes, seasonal planting of beds and containers, restoring a neglected garden back to its original state, refreshing a tired lawn, wildlife and pollinator friendly planting schemes, mature tree planting, hedge creation or complementary planting to provide additional year round interest.


We offer a variety of hard landscaping encompassing the design and build of any stonework (patios, paths, walls, steps, driveways and rockeries), any woodwork in hard and soft woods (decking, trellises and fencing), boundaries and water features.


We install and maintain irrigation systems from a few pots to throughout the whole garden. Including regular checks, testing and seasonal adjustments, additions or extensions to existing systems through to full new installations.


We design and build beautiful gardens in a variety of styles. Whether your needs are for family friendly, formal surroundings, evening entertaining, a place of contemplation, traditional, themed or contemporary we can create a beautiful garden tailored to your budget. Projects vary from a whole garden redesign to a specific area of the garden e.g. creating a new play area or a vegetable patch.
