Wildflower Meadows and Living Walls
Looking out onto a beautiful natural, wildflower meadow will lift your spirits every day. I can design and create one for you.
If you would like to enjoy vibrant displays of colour, texture and even the heady aroma of exquisite flora, contact me today. This totally bespoke service will deliver a wildflower meadow, or a green or living wall that best suits your lifestyle and your external environment.
Imagine butterflies and bees at their busiest best in their natural environment. Now imagine them in your wildflower meadow from Elemental Designs. Your own urban sanctuary, encouraging wildlife and biodiversity.
As a certified installer and Accredited Partner of Wildflower Turf©, your future dream garden is in safe hands. And, you do not even need a substantial outdoor space to enjoy the benefits of these types of design. Wildflower meadows and living walls can be large or small scale.
Using both seed and ready-to-roll, pre-grown wildflower turf, your very own meadow will continue to offer stunning shades of blue, red, yellow, purple or orange – or whatever colours and styles appeal to you the most.
As well as the design, I can oversee the installation of your garden or living wall. I work with a series of industry and horticultural experts to supply your choice of flowers, plants and shrubs to get the job done to a high standard.
Wildflower Meadows. Things you need to know
As a garden design expert, I know that with wildflower meadows, getting the outline and layout is important. In fact, it is as essential as choosing the best conditions, seed mix and methodology.
My initial engagement with you is all about listening. Based on your brief and further to a detailed site and soil analysis I can bring your floral fantasy to life.
Elemental Designs understands the maintenance requirements of wildflower meadows, too. Under-planting in early Spring with summer bulbs works well, as does a knee-high cut after heavy rain in late-spring to promote regeneration in time for the summer.
Wildflower meadows prefer a soil with fewer nutrients than you would expect. So, to avoid plant materials turning to rot and adding fertiliser to the soil, you should remove excess plant materials regularly. This should definitely be on your “to do” list in the Autumn.
Also, regular mowing of paths through the meadow is a great idea, as it will allow you to walk through and give you somewhere to sit and admire the wildlife.
Elemental Designs can create and oversee the installation of a living or green wall onto a bare wall or an enclosed, shaded external space.
Lit up at night, or with the benefit of natural sunlight, a living wall complements your home style. The choice of plants can be amended to suit any location, with careful consideration made to draining and water sources for irrigation.
On the whole, living walls are constructed from pre-fabricated plastic wall boxes that bolt to and project away from the wall at around 16cm to 20cm. I work with experienced installers who can also offer a comprehensive after care programme. As you can tell, they do not take up much space and I can make them look absolutely stunning.
Your wildflower meadow or living wall awaits you. Contact me today and let’s get started.
