Creating, managing and maintaining the balance between natural and created elements is at the heart of my gardening work considering materials, composition and location of features within the landscape. My work brings together over thirty years in public and private gardens, study and travel. Observations and experience working in natural and man-made landscapes come together to create and manage horticulture and garden projects.
From selection of plants and materials to ongoing pruning and management of trees and shrubs the focus of my work is always to deliver quality & attention to detail. Where possible and appropriate I use hand and battery powered tools to ensure a quality finish and minimise environmental impact.
Seasonal pruning requires an understanding of the plant lifecycle. An important element of seasonal pruning work is to understand timing of nesting birds, working with nature is an important part of the work I do.
Creative pruning aims to enhance and highlight the natural features of plants. The beauty of this form of pruning is that there are no rules, you can be as creative or conservative as you like.
Creating a wildlife garden
Attracting wildlife to the garden is important at many levels. Insects act as pollinators for many of our garden and commercial plants resulting in fertilisation and fruit production they also help to build the food chain and attract birds and other animals and wildlife.
Themed planting and landscaping
From selection of plants and materials to ongoing pruning and management of trees and shrubs the focus of my work is always to deliver quality & attention to detail.
Selecting the right plants not only looks right but can also benefit the environment and require less long-term management.
Pruning can be both functional and aesthetic. It can improve the health of the plant and encourage vigour with increased flowering and fruit yield.
