Garden design and planting plans Devon

Garden design, Landscaping and Planting Plans Devon

A huge thank you to Phil Voice, Landscape Juice Network.....with out him I would not be posting this blog or collaborating.

We are pleased to announce that multi award winning Garden Designer and Landscaper, Kerry Jackson of Jackson's Landscape Design, Devon has joined forces with nurseryman and award winning designer Toby Buckland. Toby, owner of Toby Buckland Nurseries and Plant Center at Powderham Castle is now designing planting schemes for our clients.

“Creating a planting scheme is the closest thing going to painting with flowers and foliage and the effects are limitless,” says Toby. “Unlike bricks and mortar, plants are dynamic and have to be chosen to thrive without dominating and crucially to look colourful right through the year.”

“We opened our nursery at Powderham Castle in 2011 growing roses, grasses and perennials – chosen for their ability to flower over a long period, their garden worthiness and suitability for the West Country climate. Plants that not only look good but have a function is also key to the selection process, whether it’s fragrance, wildlife-friendliness or the ability to survive where little else will.”

“I’m really excited about working with Kerry. His landscaping skills are second-to-none and together I believe we can offer a unique service perfectly geared to deliver what clients want and create exceptional gardens that they will love”.

Very relevant given a few recent threads ...

"They did do a 1.1 but as I said, the "cutters" are too wide and foul part of the saw.

Jon Davidson replied to Oliver clarkson's discussion Van seat covers
