Your own style can work well in the garden, without it looking like a dog’s breakfast! We do it all the time - compromise that is. Finding a garden style that suits you and your outdoor environment is what we do best. There’s no point in wishing for a strictly formal French garden only to find it needs constant watering, 10 plus hours per week hedging, and 5 years patience while it takes form! Where’s the fun in that? What if I were to tell you that you can have it by the end of the week? All it takes is some expert advice, a quick landscape sketch design, good plant selection and a band of merry men to install it. We promise that you will love it, your spouse will love you (next to no garden maintenance!) and the Council will love you also (for abiding by the unrelenting water restrictions in place). Take a look at one of our past ‘Formal French’ gardens, adapted to suit our sub-tropical environment. Can you tell the difference between the ‘real McCoy’ and one that’s been adapted to suit it’s environment?
