Planting is often the final stage of a garden design project exeter. And in some ways the most crucial.  Plants need to enhance your garden design exeter.  Creating colour, textures and interest. Plants need to complement and enhancing the hard landscaping materials.

Your plants also need to match your gardens growing conditions.  The soil type, amount  sunlight and drainage conditions.  Plants need to ‘work together’. Creating a successful planting scheme for your garden design exeter.

Ever popular due to tv shows, the chelsea flower show and diarmuid gavin.  Combine bold colours and strong shapes to produce a low maintenance garden. 

Forget the fuss when selecting plants.  Go for bold shapes and strong colours.  Always plant in groups, using odd numbers.  Adding swaths of colour to your garden.  Plants include croscosmia planted in drifts, alliums planted in groups.   Complimented by grasses, festucas or carex.  For a softer look add  agapanthus and verbenas.  

Contemporary paving materials include granite and porcelain.  Artificial grass can be used to produce a virtually maintenance free garden.  Looking  great,  all year round.

Go traditional.  Add a classic look to your garden design.  Plants and paving provide the gardens formal shape and structure.  Paving tends to be in straight lines.  Sometimes repeating geometric patterns are also used.  Edge borders and lawns with natural stone setts.  Materials can be traditional or contemporary, as long as the finish is clean and uncluttered.

Use box hedging to frame areas.  Combine with formal topiary and classic plants such as agapanthus and lavender.  Always plant in groups for maximum impact.  Bold shaped plants can be used.  As long as they are softed by other plants.  For example, combine phormiums with verbenas and crocosmias.

Consider using plants that encourage wildlife into your garden.  Lavender is great for pollinating insects such as bees.  Budlea is always a favourite for butterfly’s.   Grasses such as miscanthus are great for insects.   Sow drifts of wild flowers to produced a wild flower meadow.  Great for insects, providing food for birds. Cut back at the end of the growing season.
