Taking inspiration from different landscapes
At Town and Country Gardens we look forward to taking our lead from you when you use us for landscape gardening in Balham. However, we also find a lot of inspiration in the world around us. Reflecting a piece of inspiring landscape into a garden can be very beautiful.
Landscape gardening goes beyond aesthetics. There are lots of practical solutions in nature to tackle swampy ground, dry or windy places and uneven landscapes. We can turn these into an advantage using landscape gardening techniques. A member of the Town and Country Gardens team will talk to you about what you want to achieve and how we can incorporate some of these ideas when we meet you to discuss your landscape gardening in Balham.
Forests are beautiful places but they are very sophisticated ecosystems as well. There are clear layers within a forest and different plants thrive at different level. This natural occurrence can be used to your advantage in the garden as some plants can be used to shelter or support others in the different layers.
