Planting

Whilst the hard landscaping provides the framework and practical features of your garden, it is the plants which make the garden aesthetically pleasing.

Avenue Landscapes can provide you with planting plans giving you the most appropriate plants for the given site and style from Gertrude Jekyll borders to modern contemporary planting.

All the plants we purchase are from trade nurseries which means that they are professionally looked after by horticulturists. Trade nurseries offer a managed system of spraying and pruning to a very high standard. Avenue Landscapes has good relationships with local and specialised trade nurseries. Some nurseries only provide herbaceous, some only provide trees and some only provide shrubs. This is how professionals find the layering of colour, size and naturality for the individual. Soil plays an important part in every planting scheme. On previous projects, the customer only wanted herbaceous plants so the whole garden was excavated down 400mm and new topsoil imported but if you don't have the budget, we can do a planting scheme for your soil structure from clay to sand. All our topsoil is sourced only from green sites. We try not to use screened soil, depending on budget restrictions.
