Melanie Kerr Garden Services
Planting Plans & Plant Sourcing Service

My passion is creating well thought out borders that provide all year interest, be it a completely new garden or revamping an existing tired border.  I offer planting plan or border design and a comprehensive plant sourcing service. 

The Planting Plan shows the location and spacing of all the plants, both new and existing, in the design. The accompanying Plant Schedule lists the plant names, sizes and quantities and is used for costing, ordering and setting out the plants.

I can source annual/perennials right through to specimen large shrubs and trees.  This is a stand alone service so you do not need to engage with a full garden design to access our plant sourcing service.


Get in touch for an initial conversation and we will then book you in for a Garden Consult - this will be £130 for 2 hours.  This process involves checking the aspect, soil conditions and evulating the site.  We then listen to your aspirations for your outdoor space and plant likes/dislikes taking into consideration maintenance. We will also take measurements of the proposed site to draw up the survey. Planting Plans include moodboards, plant schedules and maintenance plans start at £150.
