My garden pond journey evolved from an early passion for garden design. I’ve always relished the design process.
For me, there are three pillars of great garden design – colour, colour and colour!
Yes, there’s structure too but, without colour, a garden is lifeless. Garden colour schemes can be as simple or as complex as you wish. They might reflect your personality, your dreams or both.
Take a look at the images on this page. Don’t you just love the variety of colours on show? And it’s not just in the floral blooms. Look at the varying shades of colour within the foliage. With careful planning, you can enjoy a colourful garden all year round.
Beautiful borders from the garden design experts
We want you to enjoy the right plants for your environment – plants that will prosper and make your garden a place to feel proud of.
But we don’t just pop your plants into your border. We carry out a proper job from start to finish. We clear those hateful perennial weeds, dig over the border and then add compost and fertilisers.
What’s your idea of the perfect theme? Oriental? Victorian? Evergreen?
Tell us what you’re looking for and leave the rest to us.
What about shady borders?
We’re asked this question more than any other. A common myth is that you just have to settle for ferns. But in fact, you have plenty of options – many of them colourful. For example, did you know that Acers and Heucheras thrive in the shade?
Your Garden Design quote will include a comprehensive garden plan and plant list. When the day arrives for the planting, we bring your plants with us. We’re meticulous about the planting out process. It’s no easy task:
- Understanding the soil type
- Digging each hole to the correct size
- Adding the right amount of the right compost
- Planting the shrub at the correct level
Only this painstaking approach will ensure your plants enjoy a long and beautiful life!
Great garden design to last a lifetime!
The difference between good garden design and great garden design is all about plant knowledge. This is where we excel. Our knowledge and years of experience knowledge of how different plants behave in different habitats will make all the difference.
A Michael Wheat design isn’t just for one year – it’s for many years of enjoyment and pleasure.
A good border design is all about depth. Get that right, with three to five levels of colourful planting, and you’ll have a beautiful border to be proud of.
