Gardens offer escapism and relaxation for busy individuals. For others, they give a sense of purpose or a chance to potter and grow simply for pleasure. Every garden should feel like a sanctuary that nurtures our souls.
We believe gardens should look beautiful and be good for the planet.
That's why we've spent over 20 years helping garden lovers create uplifting, functional and wildlife-friendly spaces. Sustainable, biodynamic gardens are at the core of our work and we make sure every one is as spectacular as it is ecological.
Designing and creating a garden that nourishes you and gives back to nature takes time and specialist know-how. If you don't have them, don't worry.
That's where we come in.
We live and breathe gardens. And as a family business, we invest ourselves in your project. So, you can have faith in our approach, and ability to transform your space into a sanctuary you'll love. And we'll help you do your bit for our planet too.
Gardens and outdoor spaces are an antidote to our always-on lifestyles. At Ellicar we specialise in designing and creating naturalistic gardens so you can step out of your door and straight into nature. Read More...
Gardens are critical to improving our environment. Through thoughtful design and compassion for the land, we give you a beautiful and biodynamic garden that does its bit to help improve the planet and help fight climate change.
Formal, contemporary, cottage or naturalistic style. Wildlife isn't fussy - it just needs the right plants plus a sprinkling of care and compassion.
We're experts in ecologically friendly planting schemes for every style of garden. You'll find them easy to care for, beautiful all year round, and your garden will come alive with wildlife.
Our design process starts with a garden walkabout while we listen to your ideas and take in your personality and lifestyle. Then we carry out a site survey and develop a concept design for your garden.
We draw construction plans for features such as pergolas, ponds, patios, garden edging, and sustainable garden drainage. So you can be confident that what's beneath the surface of your garden is given the expert care and attention necessary to ensure every part of its design lasts for years to come.
We design bespoke planting schemes tailored to your garden conditions and style, be that cottage garden, contemporary, naturalistic or formal.
Planting plans show the exact position and density of each tree, shrub and perennial, grass and bulb. You'll see how the plants will occupy the space in your garden as they come into their own to create a vibrant tapestry of texture and colour.
Once your garden is designed, we bring it to life. Our landscape team and specialist craftsmen carry out the hard landscaping. It starts with installing services and drainage before moving on to paving, walling, ponds, decking, steel edging and garden structures such as bespoke pergolas, gazebos and arches.
Once the hard landscaping is complete, our soft landscaping team prepares the ground, lays turf, and sows lawns and meadows. And we plant trees and borders using plants sourced from our trusted UK growers and nurseries, leaving you with a garden ready to enjoy.
