Ground Cover

Ground cover plants provide greenery beneath taller shrubs and trees.

They can also provide cover for hiding tree stumps, unsightly objects such as manhole covers, edge shrubberies, and cover banks where maintenance is difficult.

Although they will help to control annual weeds, perennial weeds such as docks, couch grass, brambles and nettles must be sprayed or removed before planting.

We have perennials, shrubs, conifers and bamboos which can all provide effective ground cover.

Some varieties will provide shelter, nesting sites and food for birds, and others are excellent for attracting bees and butterflies.

Plants for Coastal Areas

Trees , shrubs, climbing plants and hedges can all flourish in coastal areas.

Some may be tolerant of full exposure to salt laden winds whilst others may do well in shelter against a wall, building or fence.

Providing windbreaks in the form of hedges or netting will widen the range of plants that can be grown.

There is a surprisingly wide range of plants that can be used in coastal areas, please ask us for advice.
