Mature Planting for Garden, Skegness, Lincolnshire, UK
Mature planting for an existing garden
Mature planting design scheme for an existing garden for an instant effect, for a busy family. The low-maintenance planting has been kept to soft whites, reds and blues for continuous colour throughout the year. Plants such as Magnolia, Hydrangea, Photinia, Cornus, Cotinus, Plumbago, Vitex, Fatsia, Rhododendron, and groundcover plants like Pachysandra create the desired effect.
With spare time becoming more scarce, many clients are asking for low-maintenance gardens, but want an instant look with mature planting. Showing clients around plant supplier nurseries is great fun and informative. Clients are normally amazed at how large you can buy some plants. This garden had already been designed by the client, but they were falling short when it came to planting.
Most of the planting sits around the boundary of the garden, but through a choice of textures, shapes, form, colour and scent they can be enjoyed for 12 months of the year, and also attract wildlife into the garden.
Mature planting always needs to be cared for in the early stages, so a full planting schedule and care and maintenance schedule is supplied at the time of planting. This shows exactly what needs to be done and when.
