Literal Landscapes- Landscape Garden Design and Build


As the winter months close in, now is the time for closing the curtains and ignoring your garden? WRONG! Many customers believe that garden construction isn’t possible in the Winter months.  Literal Landscapes are here to tell you that this is a myth! 

Addressing your garden needs during the Winter in preparation for the Summer will not only significantly reduce the cost overall, but you can proudly show off your home and garden in the New Year.  What could be nicer than opening up those doors with a cosy fire and some outdoor heaters whilst spending time with family and friends?  In addition, your garden will be ready for a nice early spring party, or Summer BBQ without the last minute hassle.  

Construction can take place just as effectively throughout the winter months and to prove this point, during January and February we are offering a significantly REDUCED LABOUR COST FOR CONSTRUCTION WORKS, and REDUCED COST FOR MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS. These costs will remain fixed for the lifetime of the contract even if it runs into the Summer months. 

Spaces in January and February are limited so snap up this offer whilst you can!

"Easy Lawn"

As featured in the September 2013 Informer Magazine! 

Artificial Grass has never received the greatest press, and has been given a bad name in the past.  Commonly associated with old astro-turf matting, the use of artificial grass has always been looked upon negatively within a domestic garden.  These days, technology has advanced and artificial grass has come on leaps and bounds. 

With a huge variety of artificial grass ranges, it is becoming increasingly hard to tell the difference between the artificial and real grass.  A low maintenance solution for professionals and families who want an attractive garden without the upkeep, artificial grass can provide this easy yet aesthetically pleasing solution.  Artificial grass will look great for years and won't be killed by pets or children running across it or digging their heels in!  This is particularly helpful to those trying to sell their house, or those who just don't have the time to mow or water their lawn in this constantly changing weather.

Of course, it isn't real grass and, as a Landscaper with over 10 years in the industry, it would be silly to suggest otherwise.  However, this solution is certainly becoming of increasing interest and is something recommended to those who want the best of both worlds.  

Literal Landscapes, visionary landscape garden design, construction and maintenance company; are gaining a great reputation around the Informer area (Hedge End, West End, Botley, Curdridge, Wickham, Durley, Titchfield, Park Gate, Locks Heath, Eastleigh and Southampton) for finding tailored solutions such as this for families and companies alike through expert garden design, build and maintenance.
