Quality landscaping and gardening in West London.
Ecological planting means choosing plants that suit the site’s environmental conditions and not simply plants that are pretty.
These conditions include soil, aspect, wind, frost, rainfall and microclimate.
Choosing the right plant for the right place is important to ensure gardens will thrive and be long lived without the constant need for replacement plants.
Our latest report compares two distinct environmental areas of a garden and suggests a selection of Mediterranean and Woodland plants to suit the conditions of these areas.
Plants can be used to play different functions in a garden:
Low level plants that fill the ground, soften hard edges and link planting to hard landscaping.
Plants that bring focus, lead the eye and punctuate the garden. They may have strong form, patterns, emphasis, bold foliage, coarse texture, vibrant colours.
Planting that provides an year round framework for the garden, create enclosure, height, screening, backdrop, division and framing.
Pretty plants that add interest and lighten up the garden. They may have attractive flowers, fruits, texture, shape or colour.
