Planting-The plot thickens!
Whether you have a large or small garden.
A very important part to consider is the planting, which is often overlooked.
Expanses of hard landscape construction can make an area feel very harsh, cold and empty. This is where the introduction of plants, transforms an idea, into a garden.
When you have a new lawn or paved area, even an expanse of decking, whatever time of year it is it will always look the same.
You can spend a fortune on expensive natural York stone paving but without planting to enhance and soften it, the paving will never be shown off to its full potential.
Plants however evolve throughout the seasons constantly changing to give you all round year interest.
Spring brings you the forming of new leaf buds, bulbs poking up through the soil, the early flowers bringing colour telling you the cold winter is over and your garden is springing, quite literally into life.
To summer with perennials and shrubs battling for the most colourful showiest blooms.
To be able to sit in your garden, the air full of sweet fragrances, watching a greater diversity of birds and insects that favour your garden thanks to the greater range of planting is just another advantage of having your borders professionally planned.
With autumn slowly creeping in, leaves turn the most beautiful colours of crimson, orange and yellow to name a few.
