What is a

Horticulture is the art or science of cultivating gardens. A horticulturist has expert knowledge about plants – their selection, uses, cultivation and care. Practising horticulturists need good design skills, communication skills, intensive plant knowledge, and practical expertise about all aspects of the landscaping process.

What is soft landscaping?

This covers all non-construction aspects of landscaping, such as soil works, clearing, planting, mulching, turfing, irrigation, pruning and transplanting. It may also include garden edging, stepping stone paths, pebble work and installation of prefabricated water features.

What is hard landscaping?

This covers construction works such as excavation, paving, fencing, retaining walls, pergolas, steps and purpose-built water features. We work with several structural landscapers to provide these services to our clients.
