Planting

At Garden Club London we provide a range of planting services to suit a range of budgets and requirements from balcony pots and planters, filling gaps in existing garden borders to complex planting schemes to give year round interest. We have vast plant knowledge and are able to achieve great results particularly in London gardens. Popular requests are for child friendly planting including ‘grow your own’ areas, sensory gardens for health care and education, and seasonal interest. We would love to discuss your requirements – we are passionate about plants and can help you to achieve the most out of your garden.

Starting from Scratch

We can advise you on plants that will suit your garden and your taste. We will also make a planting selection based on your desired level of maintenance if you are planning to look after the plants yourself. We will take light levels, soil, moisture and any threats from footballs or pets into consideration to ensure that you have a planting scheme that will thrive.

Improving Existing Gardens

Perhaps you have run out of inspiration or energy – or both! Give us a call and we can recommend planting and pruning that will give your existing scheme a refreshing lift. We are happy to carry out smaller aspects of landscaping and planting to give your garden a makeover on a budget. This is a popular service for homeowners who are getting the house and garden ready for sale and want to achieve the best asking price.

The builders are coming

You have your planning permission, the builders are on the way armed with sledgehammers and the bi-fold doors are going to look amazing! But what will the garden look like? So many times the garden is the very last thought – it need not be. Give Garden Club London a call and we can make a range of recommendations on how to get the most from the garden. From a full re-design to compliment the interior or perhaps re-defining the space with some clever design and low cost improvements, Garden Club London can help. We are also happy to work with clients who would like to get the builder to construct the garden and want a professional horticulturist to design and install the planting. We can also lift and save precious plants that might be damaged or otherwise be destroyed during building works.

Pots & containers

Garden Club London are experts at selecting pots and containers that will make the most of outdoor space from window boxes to roof gardens. We can source pots and containers from around the world to suit your needs and can supply and install specimen plants for maximum impact or colourful seasonal bedding plants throughout the year.

Tree Planting

Garden Club London provide tree planting services for various sizes and species of trees. We can advise on the most suitable trees for your garden and have access to a huge range of trees grown both in the UK and abroad. Tree planting in London is a hugely important issue for the sustainability of the city environment. As well as planting in gardens, we can carry out larger projects at schools, industrial parks and street planting at new developments or for local authorities.

PLANTING FOR PRIVACY AND SECURITY

Privacy in a London garden is usually high on the priority list. We can advise on a number of options to suit your requirements and offer practical and attractive solutions. Popular options include pleached trees; these are well established trees with a clear stem usually starting at around 1.5m. The canopy of the tree is carefully trained over many years onto a slender frame in varying sizes. This maximises space and privacy by creating a vertical green barrier in a range of species. See the gallery for examples.

Another popular choice is bamboo which creates a less formal screen with some transparency to allow light to pass through. Bamboo has a variety of stem colours and looks stunning at night when lit up. Often bamboo is planted in containers to restrict the root development which makes it an ideal choice for small gardens and roof terraces.

Garden Club London can also advise on a number of options for planting that will provide a good security barrier, increase wildlife, screen ugly features or provide fruit.
