Gardens are a process as much as a work of art, they take time, patience and thought, requiring a sense of belonging, something that sits comfortably in its surroundings.
From a horticultural point of view Inspire will :
Create new talking points in your garden,
Bring borders back to life,or create new ones,
Add a freshness in its look and touch,
Open it up to the wonders of colour,shape and surprises,
Interest all year round.
But,and most importantly of all we leave you with a garden that will make you smile,happy to walk through regardless of the weather,because there is something going on,something moves,and with the right plants a surprise round every corner.
A well planted and attractive garden will compliment your home and provide interest with seasonal variations in shape.colour,texture and the natural life that will thrive around it. It will also give people there first impressions of you,and after all first impressions count.
Gardens can portray many different moods, circular beds have an elegance about them,relaxing and soft.Whereas sharp edges show a more strict and disciplined approach,direct, and to the point,an attempt to tame nature. Woodland borders are romantic,you can walk through and feel,touch and smell the leaves and flowers,clear your mind and become part of it.
So not only does the garden create moods,it can change them as well, colours have an amazing ability to relax us,just like wearing your favourite trousers or dress.
Think of this when you are planting.At the end of the day you come home from work and you sit down with a cup of tea and first thing you do is kick your shoes off,you’ve been in them all day,as soon as they come off your whole body feels relaxed.
Its the same with plants,when you plant them give them a little TLC,make there feet (roots)comfortable and just watch how they will respond and reward you.
Your garden is your closest point to nature, embrace it, enjoy it, learn from it.
Containers and troughs for courtyards and small spaces.
When space is limited but you still want that enjoyment of flowers and plants,a trough or container is perfect. Over the years we have found many plastic containers/pots seem to become brittle with age,wooden containers become weak and splinter. So for this reason we have sourced both containers and troughs that are lightweight,easy to move and most importantly of all last a number of years. Made up of Granite ,Fibreglass, Slate, Stainless Steel, Aluminium they are made to last,create quite a feature and show your plants/flowers off to there best. No need to worry about treating them,they look after themselves and with the Fibreglass and Aluminium easy to move as well.
If you want to create them yourself we can supply the container,compost so its ready to use,or we can supply the plants as well for you to work with. Obviously if you want them to come complete we can do that as well any time of the year, maybe for a special occasion,birthday,anniversary gift its up to you, contact us for more details.
Colour and shape are everything in a garden,they are an art in themselves which we can rarely emulate,but,working with them you can create something beautiful and breathtaking and combined with light the same area (or plant) can create images that you may only ever see once,but you’ll always remember them.

We inherited Mark when we moved into our new house. Mark has been instrumental in developing our mature garden in stages,to more reflect our vision.He listens, offers advice, designs,landscapes and creates bespoke borders full of colour and texture that reflect the changing seasons. The garden is being transformed into something we are proud of and will enjoy for many years to come. Thanks Mark.
