Garden Themes

Although we specialise in Naturalistic planting there are many styles within this theme and we would like to understand which style you prefer, so we can design along the lines you enjoy. We will also suggest what suits your site, climate etc.  Some of the many options are presented here, which you can use as reference when we discuss your preferences. Please also see the next page on the website for more ideas.

You will probably like more than one option, which is normal and themes can overlap to produce a sperate theme, but check out some ideas below to help to narrow down what you like.

If you don't see anything you like below, please find some images of what you enjoy to give us inspiration for your design.
