A Planting Plan is produced as part of the overall design process but can also be supplied as a separate service. Whether you wish to renovate an existing border or are starting from scratch, a well-planned Planting Plan is essential to achieve the desired look in the garden. As a designer I will choose plants for your garden that are in keeping with your chosen style (eg. cottage style, Mediterranean style, contemporary). I also ensure that you have ‘right plant, right place’ enabling the chosen plants to thrive in their surroundings and soil type. Plant form, height and spread, colour and texture are all taken into account also when choosing the right plants for your garden.
A Planting Plan details the botanical and any common name for the chosen plant, the size of the plant on purchase and its ultimate height. The plan will also detail how many plants are required to achieve the desired result and have a picture of the plant itself.
If you commission a Planting Plan I am also able to produce a Planting Maintenance Booklet for you if you wish me to at an additional cost. This booklet details each plant in the garden and how to care for and maintain it throughout the seasons.
I am able to source plants and other materials such as compost, mulches and soil treatments for you from local suppliers and recommended wholesale nurseries getting you the best deals available. I will also accept delivery of the plants on site, set them out as per the plan and plant them for you if you wish me to. Alternatively you may wish to do this yourself, this is completely up to you.
