The soft landscaping process involves the ‘soft’ parts of the garden. The changing, moving, living elements which include turf laying, shrubs, trees, topiary, plants, perennials, bi-annuals, mulch, decorative stone and soil. Soft landscaping services improve the visual elements of the area after the hard landscaping foundations have been set from grounds clearance. Winding pathways, ponds, rockeries, walls, patios, and decking and architectural features all play a part in the basic structure before the soft landscaping elements are decided on and the possibilities and choices are limitless.

Our highly skilled horticultural professionals provide a tailor-made service, taking great pride in offering our clients the best horticulturist practices. Our standards of work are consistently high and carried out on schedule and within the parameters of your budget.

Whatever the size of your outdoor space we take the time to recommend specimen plants best suited to your requirements and soil structure. Our trusted relationship with a local plant nursery gives us access to over 20,000 plant specimens giving you complete flexibility to design your landscape.

At Greengrass we assist homeowners and businesses to improve their outdoor space regardless of size and are committed to going that extra mile to ensure thriving and attractive landscapes all year round.

We can also supply many materials such as aggregates, border barks, decorative stone, grass seeds, enriched top soils and soil improvers.

Residential Lawn Care

Choose from hundreds of plants

We work closely with a local family run wholesale nursery in Colchester who specialise and produce over 20,000 specimen shrubs, climbers, perennials and topiary plants every year with 350 varieties available to landscapers and garden designers.

The plants are grown spaced out on drip irrigated nursery beds to ensure hardy plants that will take to their new surroundings with ease and minimal upkeep.

The nursery is able to source plants for us as they have close links to vast nurseries around Europe and the United Kingdom.

We can advise on the best plants for your outdoor space and agree a planting scheme and budget to suit. The plants will be picked up on the day of installation and will be laid out within the borders so our clients can view before planting.
