For those of you looking for landscape gardeners or garden designers in Glasgow, here are a few pointers for you. Landscape gardeners cover everything from hard landscapers who concentrate on the slabs and decking, through to the more elusive soft landscape specialists - such as Angel Horticulture Ltd - who focus on the plants, turf, and living parts of your garden. Garden designers usually either work as part of a landscaping business, or as stand-alone garden design studios.
Hard landscape contractors - there is no shortage of hard landscapers who specialise in installing the hard surfaces of your garden, the slabs, decking, fences and so on. Generally speaking, these will not be specialists when it comes to plants, and as such you are best off engaging a specialist contractor such as Angel Horticulture Ltd to take care of the living elements of your garden.
Soft landscape contractors - these are specialists in choosing and installing the plants, trees and turf into your garden. In any garden, the plants are the most important part - they make or break a garden, and you want to know that they will look good for years to come. Choosing the right plants is a skill that should not be under-estimated, as well-chosen plants will survive and thrive for a long time, looking better and better each year. Likewise, the planting process is critical, with many a costly hedge, tree and planting scheme failing due to incorrect planting, be that planting depth, failure to release pot-bound roots or insufficient watering in the critical establishment period.
Angel Horticulture Ltd is a specialist soft landscaping contractor that also offers planting plans and garden design in the Glasgow area, and further afield for larger jobs. Established in 2017 by Tom Angel - Chartered Horticulturist and Award-Winning Garden Designer.
