Here at Root One, we understand how overwhelming it can be to create a garden from scratch, with many new-build home owners typically being faced with paving, turf or completely bare, levelled ground. It’s our mission to inspire both the avid gardener and those new to gardening to create an outdoor space to be proud of. Gardening comes with huge potential benefits which include improving your overall health and well-being, relieving stress, giving you something positive to focus on and nurture, PLUS it’s great for the planet to!

If you find it difficult to visualise what you want to achieve in your outdoor space, we have recently installed four fabulous show gardens to inspire and hopefully prove to you that gardening doesn’t have to be difficult or intimidating.

Sensory Garden

Create an outdoor space filled with sounds, scents, and textures. This type of garden is popular with and beneficial to children and adults, especially those who have sensory processing issues, including autism and other disabilities.

Formal Garden

A formal garden has a decadent and enduring style that complements both large and small outdoor spaces. Key elements and features include symmetry, straight lines, and geometric shapes. 

GYO Garden

Here are some tips and ideas that will help you maximize your crop production and ensure you’ll have a space overflowing with delicious produce throughout the seasons.

Mediterranean Garden

This low maintenance style garden is ideal for those with a south-facing garden, or full sun to partial shade, with moderate protection from the elements. A Mediterranean garden provides a diversity of colours and textures, and yet is very hardy.
