Whether designing a small, contemporary courtyard garden or the grounds of a large country estate, HG Landscapes can create a planting plan from a blank canvass. We can also introduce new plants to existing gardens to enhance their structure, add colour and create more seasonal interest.

Planting plans vary according to our clients’ individual requirements, but they must consider existing garden features before introducing stylistic elements that are usually based on your preferred tastes.

Among the important factors we consider before creating tailored planting plans are:

  • Garden location
  • Services
  • Soil type/condition
  • Drainage
  • Existing surroundings/features/structures
  • Condition of existing plants to remain
  • Aspect
  • Site access
  • Neighbouring properties

Garden planting plans are typically achieved in stages, beginning with a structure formed by trees and large shrubs that is layered with smaller shrubs and herbaceous perennials and finished with ground cover plants.

We have great experience designing planting plans, ranging in scale from crane lifting large trees on to site, to bedding smaller plants that bring instant impact.
