Examples of our soft landscaping work

 Sheen, South West London


The soft landscaping involved in this garden project included a new lawn area and a small alpine garden. Some of the existing planting was retained, and augmented with camellias, buxus, lavender, pieris, clematis, climbing roses, winter jasmine and various alpine plants.

 St. Albans, Herts

The client had recently bought this house, and the garden was derelict – full of 4ft brambles and completely lacking any recognisable garden features! The above photo shows the focal point of the finished product – a stream system consisting of a large pond, 5 metre stream and feeder pond, with a bespoke oak bridge spanning the stream, Westmoreland limestone, various cobbles, low level garden lighting, and a variety of alpines, bulbs, flowering shrubs and evergreens. The two existing trees were extensively pruned and retained. New lawns were laid to the whole garden, and new fencing was installed on both sides and to the rear. Outside the patio doors a very large patio area was created using Indian sandstone, and a further planting area was installed to the right hand side of the garden. A brick barbecue was constructed at the rear of the garden.


“I have used Grass Roots Gardening Services several times over the last 10 years for different jobs including fencing my entire back garden, tidying up and helping me re-plan my garden. Their work has stood the test of time and I would be happy to use them again.”
