Garden redevelopment-a growing Investment
As new house builds fill every available space and buildings continually rise upwards, having your own garden is a real luxury. So it’s vital that your garden fulfils its potential and like the plants and soil it is nourished and treasured.
Media; planting a garden seed in your mind
Whether you own the house of your dreams with a fully landscaped garden or a small courtyard, you should to be inspired by your garden. In these days of TV garden makeovers, “no going back” and “grand designs”, lifestyle magazines and web sites, the incessant messages can leave you not knowing where to start.
Let a landscape gardening expert take the strain
There are so many options; from the design to the structural elements, the garden features to the planting, that you are often left bewildered. But don’t let the grass grow under your feet, contact me, I am a landscape gardening expert and am happy to visit you at home and plan a design that brings out the best in your garden.
Landscaping your garden is one of the best ways to increase the value of your property. You may not have room for trees but “mighty oaks from little acorns grow” so the earlier you develop your garden, the longer you have to watch it mature and enjoy it.
Money doesn’t grow on trees….but
I would prefer to think about the plants and the soil, the design and layout in your garden, but I appreciate that you are spending hard earned cash and will weigh up a garden redesign against the other priorities in your busy life.
