Garden Design and Planning

The Garden Design and Planning service that I provide includes:

When moving into a new house or deciding to ' do something about the garden' it is essential to find out what plants already exist and whether they can be incorporated into a new plan. Sometimes it is considerably cheaper to build on existing features within a garden and replant existing borders or areas rather than commit to a full garden makeover. Whatever you decide to do, my aim is to design a relaxing, stimulating garden environment which provides year long interest and, of course,meets your needs.







Wildlife Gardening

Gardens in London provide a haven for a wide variety of birds, mammals, amphibians insects and other invertebrates and can provide wildlife corridors connecting suitable habitats together. It is a misconception that you have to have a wild, overgrown and unkempt garden to attract wildlife. The creation of suitable habitats such as s pond, a meadow, a border with insect ' friendly ' plants, a hedge, or a log pile within gardens can have a dramatic effect amplify this effect and attract a wide variety of new species. In my own quite small garden in North London I attract 27 species of birds, 13 species of butterfly, 5 species of bumble bee, 4 species of dragonfly and damselfly, and 3 species of amphibians.

If you are interested in making your garden more wildlife-friendly, I can provide the following services:
