The following are a list of the common Design Stages that we at Gro Gardens undertake for every clients procedure whether the garden be large or small.
1. WHAT IS REQUIRED? Clients Brief
2. WHAT EXISTS? Site survey and analysis - Aspect, shade, views, soil type, existing vegetation
3. WHERE WILL IT GO? Planning the site, Functional Diagrams, Conceptual drawings and ideas
4. HOW WILL IT LOOK? Form & Style - Formal or informal
5. WHAT MATERIALS AND PLANTS WILL BE USED? Refinement and Detail Design
We believe that knowing how to both listen and question is critical to a thorough understanding of the customers needs and aims.
A rear garden needed updating. We added a new fence and sleeper edging
Use of hard landscaping materials and design tidies up a messy corner site
Correct selection of plant materials and grouping of plants based on sunlight and ground conditions is vital to the success and sustainability of a landscape, especially in a changeable weather location. We advocate soil amendments, mulching, low flow irrigation, and minimizing irrigated sod areas to reduce water consumption.

At Gro Gardens we believe that everyone should grow their own produce even if its only a few herbs on a windowsill. If you live in an apartment with a small balcony you can still grow herbs and salad crops. You don't have to have an allotment or a large plot. Small areas can still give you a small yield.
At grogardens we have the plant knowledge to select the right flowers, shrubs and trees for your garden, we also provide post-planting after care and maintenance directions in order to get the very best out of each plant.
GROWING your own vegetables is both fun and rewarding. All you really need to get started is some decent soil and a few plants. But to be a really successful vegetable gardener - and to do it organically - you'll need to understand what it takes to keep your plants healthy and vigorous.
SOME REASONS TO GROW YOUR OWN FOOD.
GET THE NUTRITION YOU NEED & ENJOY TASTIER FOOD! Many studies have shown that organically grown food has more minerals and nutrients that we need than food grown with synthetic pesticides. There's a good reason why many chefs use organic foods in their recipes - they taste better. Organic farming starts with the nourishment of the soil, which eventually leads to the nourishment of the plant and, ultimately our bodies.
SAVE MONEY Growing your own food can help cut the cost of the grocery bill. Instead of spending hundreds of pounds a month at the grocery store on foods that don't really nourish you, spend time in the garden, learning to grow your own food. Produce with great yields are courgettes, raspberries and if you have a greenhouse- tomatoes.
GET OUTDOORS When you grow your own food you do have to do a bit of work to get the end product. So you may have to spend several hours a month attending to your plot but you will be outside in the fresh air instead of slumped in front of the TV. Its a great way to get some fresh air and to connect with nature. Encourage your kids to help you, they will love it and are more likely to eat something that they have grown themselves.
