We design, plant and maintain window boxes, courtyards and small gardens in Greater London and the Home Counties. ​We plant seasonally, using perennials along with grasses, shrubs and bulbs with some annuals tucked in for interest and colour.  We incorporate many pollinators for bees and birds and we use British-grown plants, aiming to be sustainable and encourage bio-diversity. .

 

Our style is loose and naturalistic and our skill is in choosing the right plants for the right places and adapting our country-garden style for city-living.

CONTAINERS & IRRIGATION

We plant up existing containers and we also supply a wide selection including corden steel, fibre glass and terracotta. We work with several companies who specialise in bespoke designs to suit your property and prefer to work with boxes and planters which have irrigation, and can install simple systems ourselves if required.

 

HOW WE WORK

We schedule a site visit so that we can understand your requirements. We then prepare a detailed quote which we discuss with you. If you agree to our quote, our initial planting includes our base framework of evergreens and perennials.

We then aim to refresh your boxes seasonally but not replace the entire boxes. We like to follow a regular schedule of seasonal tasks and provide a maintenance programme for boxes we have planted ourselves.
