Soft landscaping is just the industry word for the installation of trees, shrubs, plants and all things green that helps soften the hard landscaping elements. It gives a sense of flow and direction around the garden.
Plants, trees and shrubs are what really brings a garden to life once the construction works have been completed.
Planting is a personal choice and can really add character to a garden, the only limitation being the aspect of the garden which can sometimes dictate what can be planted and where.
Although we specialise in landscape construction which includes building retaining walls, steps, decking and other hard landscaping architecture, soft landscaping is very much a part of what we do.
Plants are just as important a feature in making landscaping work and look great. They add vertical height, are points of interest and more importantly, plants and flowers put on a show.
Whether it be spring flowers or vibrant autumn colours,you should be able to enjoy your garden at all times of the year.
Some of our projects have involved adapting an existing planting scheme by adding more seasonal flowering plants, shrubs and trees to provide the desired effect. Other projects have required a complete makeover by stripping out all of the existing soft landscaping schemes and starting again.
Where possible we save and reuse existing plants and place them elsewhere in the garden.
We don’t do ordinary. As well as our bespoke garden fittings, in all of our soft landscaping projects you’ll find something you won’t expect.
