A planting plan is drawn to-scale with each plant shown with a circular plant symbol and a number. Usually planting plans are drawn over pre-existing garden designs. 

Before you can get a planting plan for your garden, it may need to be surveyed. This is because planting plans are drawn to-scale, and a survey will help to ensure that the plan is accurate. A survey will measure the dimensions of your garden and take into account any features that could affect planting, such as existing plants, trees, and boundary lines. If you are starting again and have a to-scale garden design then this can be used. 

Planting plans can be simple or complex depending on our clients plant knowledge and available time to invest in maintaining their garden. Simple planting plans might involve planting individual groups of the same variety of plants together to make caring for your garden more simple. For more complex planting plans, our clients might need to know more about plant spacing, growing habit, and pruning groups. We can work with our clients to create planting plans that fit their specific needs and ensure that their gardens are beautiful and thrives for years to come.


Block Planting 

Block planting is a great way to organize your garden and make maintenance easier. By grouping plants together, you can create clear spaces for each plant to grow. This also makes it easier to water and fertilize the plants, as you can target each group separately. In addition, block planting can help to prevent weeds from taking over your garden. By isolating the planting area, you can more easily control the weed population. As a result, block planting is an effective way to keep your garden looking tidy and well-maintained.


Interplanting is a method of planting multiple different plants together in close proximity. This sort of planting is often associated with country gardens, herbaceous borders, and bulb planting. Interplanting is great for creating existing vibrant borders. It does, however, require good plant knowledge and time to maintain your garden.The key to successful interplanting is to choose plants that have compatible growing, with careful planning, interplanting can be a great way to create a beautiful and unique garden.

Planting plan format

A planting plan is a design tool that shows the location and spacing of plants on a property. Our planting plans are used by landscapers, architects, and gardeners to visual planting schemes. We often produce planting plans that include both annuals and perennials, as well as bulbs, trees, and shrubs. Our planting plans will also include a key that shows the botanical name and number of each plant. When creating a planting plan, it is important to consider the mature size of each plant. This will ensure that there is enough space for the plants to grow and that they do not overcrowd one another.

Planting List (KEY)

A plant list is the key to any planting plan. It matches the number on the planting plan with the botanical name, seasonal interest and habit of the plant. This allows you to easily keep track of what plants you have and where they are supposed to go. A well-organized plant list can also be a valuable reference tool when it comes time to care for your garden. By having all of the relevant information in one place, you can quickly and easily identify each plant and give it the attention it needs. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced gardener, a plant list is an essential part of any successful gardening venture.
