Garden Design Advice

Garden Design Advice: how do you design a garden, where do you start?


For many gardeners ‘designing a garden’ can be quite daunting. How on earth can you work out if the Hellebores will grow well next to your Hebes?  How many plants will you actually need? On top of which you need to work out the sizes and shapes of the lawns, paths and borders as well as the more mundane; like where the bins and washing line should be!

To help you, we have written advice for practically every garden problem we could think of. There are over 400 pages of gardening advice, design and plant information. As it’s all been written by us, so you won’t find this anywhere else!
