Hard landscaping gives a garden its bones but it’s the planting that brings it to life.

Part art and part science, planting design considers not just the colour, texture and form of the plants but also the site conditions (soil type, garden aspect, wind direction and light levels), to weave a scheme that looks good all year and thrives.

Whatever your preferred style, from spiky architectural to billowy cottage garden, Sue Bell Garden Design can create a planting scheme that enhances your garden.
