Soft Landscaping


What Is Soft Landscaping?

The soft landscaping is the planting scheme. It takes knowledge and experience to plant a garden that will look good all year round.

It’s time to plant once the hard landscaping is done. This is where so many people have problems, and even experienced gardeners can find that a plant fails to thrive, or becomes a bully and swamps more delicate specimens. But most experienced gardeners only occasionally plant a garden from scratch.

That is where our expertise lays; Martin Gordon Landscapes creates new gardens and beds every day. We know what works in your district, what works in the conditions in your garden (sun, shade, soil type, moisture levels, exposure to wind), and where we can source the plants that best suit those conditions and your vision for your garden.

We will discuss with you the style of planting you want and the maintenance needed for that style.  We will also discuss with you whether the style of planting you want is best suited to your garden conditions, and if not, what might be appropriate substitutes.  If you’re unsure what you want, we can talk it through together – there a lots of options to suit all gardens from woodland, gravel, wildlife, seaside to cottage gardens and many more besides!

Martin Gordon Landscapes Ltd works to the highest standard from start to finish, whether a full garden design is constructed, or individual elements are built. We can also provide solutions for special needs, such as disabled access, sensory gardens and low maintenance gardens, even gardens for protection which make it hard for a burglar to break in!

We have a diverse portfolio, which we would like to show you, and we also love to explore new ideas. Consult us about your planting needs; we will submit an outline plan & budget for your approval.

We only use the best quality materials and source locally where possible. Our dedication has been rewarded with a BALI accreditation, not to mention a loyal group of satisfied customers.

Martin Gordon Landscapes offer something that is unique: the perfect marriage between garden design and landscape construction – whether you need us to execute your own design, or ask us design the area ourselves.
