We are all unique and our gardens should reflect our individual personalities, tastes and styles. Every garden is different in size, shape, location and aspect and the architectural environment varies widely. New projects are always started with a fresh look at the site and careful consideration of the requirements and desires of the client.
Developing a concept is key to ensuring that a garden is bold, individual and unified.
By working in close collaboration, rossgardens will take your thoughts and views onboard to deliver an original garden tailored just for you.
We have a responsibility to care for the environment around us. With this in mind, careful choice of local, sustainable or recycled materials and suppliers can really reduce the environmental impact when caring for or creating a garden, without compromising quality and aesthetics.
Selecting the right plants that are long-lived and won't need replacing in the near future not only saves resources but also saves you money. With increasingly unpredictable weather forecasting summer droughts and sudden downpours, using versatile plants that can cope with extremes of weather is a wise investment for the future.
Gardens really come alive when they are buzzing with bees, with butterflies flying from flower to flower and nesting birds taking advantage of abundant seeds and fruit.
With this in mind rossgardens can advise on simple ways to increase biodiversity and encourage wildlife into your garden. For example, choosing the right plants that not only look great but also attract the insects and birds you may want to share your garden with. Fortunately, plants that are most attractive to wildlife are often those which are also most attractive to us, with colourful flowers, long flowering periods, large seed heads and bright juicy berries.
