beautiful and sustainable planting schemes

Choosing plants for your garden can be daunting. Creating long season interest, with plants that will flourish in your conditions, whilst ensuring that they won't need more care than you've got time to give them takes knowledge, technique and patience.

Sarah Layton creating beautiful, sustainable and long-lasting planting designs

hand-drawn planting design

We will discuss what will suit your home, the style of planting you would like and how much time you have to care for it. Once I understand all that I will create a scheme for you that offers on-going interest of texture, colour and form. The scheme will be supplied as a hand-drawn, to-scale, layout plan with a schedule of plants.

Sometimes it's necessary to adjust the shape and size of the beds, or redefine where they are before refreshing the planting so I generally offer planting design in association with The Garden Experience, A Year In Your Garden or Garden Design services.


top quality plants...

I will supply top quality specialist plants to fulfil the design and lay these out at planting time to ensure you get the effect I've designed for you.

It's a very lovely thing to be part of the planting, if you feel able, and will help you feel a real connection to your garden.  

I will teach you the correct planting technique as well as advise on soil preparation, mulching and more so that your plants get off to the best start.

Planting day was intense and very hard work, but so worthwhile. A really great outcome; the garden looks fantastic.
