Our Walking the Land service may sound a little grand but basically all we do is just loiter in your garden awhile, analyse the soil and microclimate find out where the sun is coming from and get ideas. Our recommendations usually come in booklet form or videos or a bit of both.
In our 25 years as a landscaping company many times we have seen our clients having to grapple with the fact they own a substantial plot of land for the first time and this is an exciting moment where imagination has to be tempered with reality – as there are plenty of expensive mistakes lurking in the shadows with the commissioning of exterior works if you don’t understand the ecology of your land.
Additionally there may be the anxiety that you have no clear idea what the genius loci or ‘spirit of place’ of your garden should actually be looking like – perhaps because it has been obscured by past neglect or misakes.
We relish all such challenges.
