One of the hardest things in effective garden design is putting together great planting schemes. Very few people have the proper knowledge or skill to do this; regularly, we see customers opt to do this part of their landscaping project themselves to keep costs down – often with disastrous results.
Our experienced garden designers have been working with plants in Cambridge for many years. They therefore not only know which plants will do well in the sun and in the shade, but also how large each plant will grow as they mature, allowing the correct spacing between plants. If the garden is too full to begin with, all the plants will be invading one another’s space later on.
Summit Landscapes are here on hand every step of the way to explain everything to you during your landscaping project. This allows you to make informed and educated decisions.
When you think of colour, flowers immediately spring to mind. However, there are a vast amount that can be achieved using beautiful foliage, variegated leaves and colourful plants. These plants can add structure to the garden or soften areas where a patio or other hard landscaping has been installed.
Summit Landscapes can put planting schemes together offering all year round colour and interest. It’s all very well to have a bright, colourful firework show for a couple of months in the summer, but we aim to add interest with beautiful plants and climbers, flowering very late and early in the seasons.
