We are a Lichfield based landscape gardening business offering a huge range of services from initial design through to completion. We landscape not only back gardens, but front gardens and driveways too. We can often give drives a new lease of life by simply cleaning and sealing the drive. We also carry out work for businesses, architects, developers, schools, local authorities and parish councils. Click here for more about our Commercial Services.
We pride ourselves on our professional approach and service. Our membership with the Association of Professional Landscapers, the Horticultural Trades Association and the Government-endorsed TrustMark scheme help facilitate this. We are also listed on the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Traders Register, used by Age Concern among others. We have an extensive range of services and are happy to take on small individual jobs as well as large and varied projects, including project management. Beautiful Gardens strongly supports all aspects of environmental issues.
Firstly, our environmental policy ensures that the company stays local (to minimise our use of diesel) and uses over 90% local suppliers for our materials. Through this policy, we undertake to recycle as much waste of possible and are registered waste carriers with the Environment Agency.
Secondly, the products we use are 90% natural. We strongly recommend the use of timber from sustainable sources, using companies accredited to the FSC. We also encourage the use of natural stone products, from slabs to water-features to gravels etc. We also have a wide variety of suppliers offering recycled products from benches, fencing, decking, rubber ‘bark’ chippings and more.
Thirdly, our garden designs are considered for their environmental advantages, with new habitats created in most gardens, mainly through planting. We are proud to be able to plant thousands of plants every year, from trees to hedging whips to shrubs and perennials. These plants are the life source of thousands of animals and can be complimented by wildlife ponds, bog gardens, bird boxes/feeders/baths, log piles for hedgehogs or any range of animal-friendly installations. Sedum matting is now available on the market. This is ideal for shed rooves, rabbit hutches etc. and forms an ideal habitat for insects.
And lastly, in addition to our services above, we have a range of eco-services offering everything from the installation of geothermal heating and rain-water harvesting systems, to drainage of flood-risk areas and installation of a range of free-draining surfaces. Sustainable drainage systems (SUDS) can be advised upon and implemented where necessary. Please click through to our Permeable Drives section for more eco-products.
