Woodland Gardens

Woodland Gardens

If you have an outdoor space with a dense covering of mature trees, then you might be wondering how to turn it into a useable garden. Floral & Hardy have experience working on woodland gardens, and can work around obstacles such as large trees to create the kind of outdoor space that you want.

Creating a woodland garden can be tricky, as some trees are protected, and most people want to avoid cutting down pretty, mature trees. That’s why the design phase is so important, as Floral & Hardy can listen to what you want to achieve in your garden, then start putting these ideas into a practical plan.

Woodland gardens have lots of shade, so it’s important to find plants that will grow under a tree canopy. The best types of plants to use in these gardens are woodland plants that like the shade such as bellflowers, geraniums, or primulas. Floral & Hardy are experts in horticulture, so can look at the type of soil found in your garden, how tall your trees are, and the kind of shade they provide, then find flowers that will thrive in this environment.

We can also help give you more light in a woodland garden by cutting back trees, or removing the lower branches to lift the tree’s canopy. This can instantly add more light, and give you a greater feeling of space. The ground underneath your trees might also need to be prepared for planting, and our experts can advise on how to make the most of your garden’s soil.

Woodland gardens have a beautiful, natural look to them, but if they are not carefully planned they can soon look overgrown. Floral & Hardy can create a woodland garden that suits your specific needs, and have the specialist knowledge needed to create a thriving garden in these sort of spaces.
