here is a lawn – a lawn for humans and for wildlife. Just because it’s not just green – is it less of a lawn? It’s more of a lawn because it feeds bees and other insects. Encourage those insects and you have less issues with pests in your garden, as the garden is in balance with nature. How to achieve it? Set the lawn mower to the right height when cutting the grass. Easy and in my eye – beautiful.
I just love seeing planting mature.

Whatever your garden issue is, Konia is the answer. She designed our garden from scratch, dealing with difficult leveling out and drainage issues and making the most of what was already there. She has flair and imagination when designing, and plans for how you will get the most fun and the last drop of sunshine out of your garden. Her ideas range from the outrageous to the practical, but she will always listen to what you want – there is never any pressure. Then comes choosing plants. Her plant knowledge is fantastic – she will know exactly what to suggest for your particular garden. Everything I have chosen with Konia’s guidance has flourished, because she puts the right plant in the right place for your soil, climate and wildlife issues (rabbits!). And such beautiful and unusual plants too. Konia has also overseen the transformation either doing work herself or finding people to come and do it, and everything has been done to the highest standard so that it looks fantastic. She is great to work with, gets things done, is really good value, and you will be so glad you got her involved.

Had a lovely day in Inverness today placing plants. The only one that was put out a wee bit was Clyde. ‘What happened to the grass that was here?’
Is your garden looking tired? It’s true the vibrancy of June has gone but this doesn’t mean your garden needs to look boring this time of the year. There are plenty of plants to give you a bit of zing. Couple this with the lovely autumn light we’ve been getting and you have an irresistible combination.
In this more naturalistic garden colour is provided by the following plants:
Hosta sieboldiana, Cotinus Grace, Eupatorium Gateway and the grasses Calamagrostis Brachytricha & Calamagrostis Karl Foerster & Rudbeckia (as well as Prunus).
Working with Konia has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. She doesn’t do everything for you, but instead, she involves you in the process and coaches you through the various steps, allowing you to gain knowledge along the way. The experience has awakened a new interest for me and provided me with an enjoyable hobby. After years of avoiding the garden, I now can’t stay out of mine! Jackie H., Garve
