We offer two different ways of designing the plants in your garden.
A Traditional Garden Design for your Buckinghamshire Garden
If you have a large garden or a garden with different levels, which requires both construction and planting, we would always recommend that you have a traditional garden design to include a site survey and a specification for all the hard landscaping work. After your first Garden Consultation appointment, we would give you our recommendations and our price for the Garden Design.
It is your choice whether you have a garden design for the planting in your garden. This garden design will be drawn to show the positioning of any existing plants and trees as well as the new recommendations. The plants in the garden design will also be provided as a planting list with Latin names, pot sizes and quantities.
Designing with Plants
If you prefer, you can opt to put all your budget into the plants and planting work rather than spending on a garden design as well. Most of our clients choose this option.
When you have an initial appointment with us to discuss your garden, we will show you our portfolio of work and the different styles of planting we have created for our clients. We have been working in Buckinghamshire gardens for 25 years and so we can share lots of ideas with you.
With this option, we will not provide you with a garden design plan. Instead you will work with Bob Mattei and use his horticultural knowledge and creative flair to give your Buckinghamshire garden the WOW Factor. We will recommend a budget for the planting to suit your needs and chosen style and, once you accept that, we will then focus on sourcing the best quality plants available at that time, which are suited to the conditions in your garden. We will also ensure that we take on board your likes and dislikes. So if you prefer cool colours, like purples, blues and silvers, we will put together a planting proposal which will incorporate varieties suitable for your garden in those colours. Or if hot colours are more your style, we will put together a scheme focusing on those.
Once we have sourced the plants for your garden from our network of nurseries, Bob will actually hand select them for you to ensure that only the best-looking plants are provided. This means that you will only receive the freshest, top quality plants.
We will then bring the plants to your garden and we will set them out on the borders for you to see before we plant them. This will give you a much better feel for the end result than looking at a static garden design. Only once we have your approval, will they be planted by our planting team.
Book A Garden Consultation
If you are interested in having your own Personal Plant Shopper for your garden, the first step is to book a Garden Consultation. Bob Mattei will meet you to discuss your garden, both hard and soft landscaping, and its conditions, to include soil check, assessment of prevailing weather conditions and shade, garden aspect, review of existing planting and discussion on your preferred style. All these things will be taken into account when we source the plants for your garden.
This consultation is charged at £75 (inc VAT) but will be deducted from any subsequent plant order of over £500 (plus VAT). You are under no obligation to order plants from us.
