Soft Landscaping

Whether you require a complete new lawn be it turf, grass seed or low maintenance artificial grass or you just need help planting some trees, shrubs and plants we can help! Every step will be taken to ensure that you achieve the look you are after.

 

New Lawns - Garden Turf & Seeding

Laying new turf can really enhance the overall look of your garden and, as the turf industry now caters for just about every garden condition, such as shady spots, high traffic areas and natural, unspoilt wildflower areas, the exact variety and grade of turf can be selected for your particular requirements.

 

If you want a fantastic lawn without the expense of turf, grass seed is the obvious choice. A wide variety of different seed mixes are available on the market and seed works well for tricky areas, such as slopes and corners. For both turf and grass seed, the site is fully prepared prior to any work being carried out.

 

Artificial Grass

No more cutting the lawn! With low maintenance gardens becoming more popular, artificial grass is now being considered by many as the preferred lawn for the modern garden. Artificial grass has improved in its texture and quality in recent years and, as with real grass, is available in varying piles resulting in a very natural look. Similar ground preparation is required for the laying of artificial grass, as it is for a patio, and samples of artificial grass can be provided on request.

 

Land Drainage

Some gardens are, unfortunately, prone to waterlogging and can prove troublesome throughout the year. Ground conditions prevent water from 'free draining' through the soil resulting in soggy, unusable areas within the garden. Rosie Landscapes has experience in installing land drains which help to alleviate both surface and/or ground water by laying an open conduit beneath the surface, encased in gravel, enabling the groundwater to drain away, normally into a soak-away.

 

Planting and planting schemes

Rosie Landscapes can carry out the planting of your trees, shrubs and plants, whilst ensuring that the correct compost is used to maximise the plant's potential. For a detailed, planting scheme we would be happy to recommend a qualified horticulturist as a well thought out planting scheme can make all the difference to your finished garden.

 

Top Tip! Compost 'bins' can be easily incorporated into your garden design giving you an easy way to recycle all those dead flowers, tea bags, shredded paper and veggie peelings.
