What is Soft Landscaping?

Soft Landscaping is the final stage of a garden landscaping project, which brings the whole garden to life and softens the hard edges. It includes a planting plan, sourcing of the plants and the planting itself. Trees, shrubs, grasses, seasonal bulbs, herbaceous, annuals & lawns supplement the hard landscape elements to create the finished product.

Soft landscaping allows gardeners to experiment with color, style and aroma with almost endless variety of plants and flowers. Combining trees and conifers, with shrubs and seasonal plants is an art, but also a science. You will need an experienced landscape gardener to think through all aspects of this planting stage and advise you on the most appropriate planting plan, because some elements will need years to reach their mature heights, while other can be easily changed on a yearly basis.
