So, why not bring a new dimension into garden design? Productive gardens.
More and more people are requesting vegetable patches, as they realise the benefits of home grown produce, but many people also don't have the time to maintain straight rows of carrots, and raise plants from seed every year.
Based on the principles of permaculture, forest gardening, and classic garden design, I have come up with the concept of a Forage Garden. The basic principles are:
- Garden is designed to professional standards, taking into account all client requirements, and garden design rules and principles
- Every plant has a use, be it edible, attractive to pollinators, nitrogen fixer, etc
- Garden is low-maintenance. All plants are trees, shrubs, perennials, or self-seeding annuals. No bare earth means less opportunity for weeds.
- Garden gives yields all year round. Even in winter.
I am very excited to launch this new service, so please email or call me to request more details.
