Landscaping in Cardiff

What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘landscape?’ Let us guess, you probably picture a beautiful expanse of trees, flowers, and maybe even a fountain, right? 

The process of landscaping, as the name suggests, is used for creating such spaces in your own home, and landscapers like us are the people who create them! Landscaping is more than just cutting grass or painting tiles – contrary to popular belief – because it builds or renovates entire exterior spaces instead of simply maintaining them.

If this is your first time considering landscaping, you may be feeling overwhelmed or panicky. Listen, we know the process sounds complicated at first glance, but if you live in Cardiff then you don’t have to worry about anything related to landscaping at all – we are here to tell you that you aren’t on your own because we’ll help you out and we’ll do it at very flexible rates. Armed with our knowledge of horticulture and landscape design, we combine science and art to create the sort of outdoor expanse you may have only dreamed of!

Landscaping in Cardiff: Our Services

Landscaping can be done from scratch if you are building either a home or a specific area of it from scratch, but it can also be done on a smaller scale – in the form of adding to or improving upon existing spaces. At Cardiff Landscaping, our services are threefold: 

  1. We firstly offer single feature additions for those of you who may be new to landscaping and are wary of too big a change, or those who have a smaller budget. 
  2. Secondly, we offer expansion or renovation of existing features for those who want to change more than one component of their home but are still not ready to go all the way.
  3. Lastly, we offer full redesigning for clients who want to start from scratch and have larger budgets.

We are flexible though, and happy to create bespoke custom packages based on your unique needs! If you are having difficulty coming up with landscaping ideas, or want to learn more about the process, we can help with that too. Since landscaping Cardiff creates features that affect the entire aesthetic or practical functioning of your property, here are some examples of the sort of changes you can make:

  • Tiling patios and garden paths; 
  • Planting flowering trees and shrubs;
  • Installing fountains or water gardens;
  • Creating driveways, walkways, and fencing; 
  • Planting flowerbeds along a path, or artificial turf within a garden. 

Our Cardiff Landscaping services cover these solutions and more; we know the area well and understand how the ground reacts to new plants and installations, as well as how these then fare with the weather and how they stand the test of time. Since its conception, our business has worked on creating meaningful relationships with our clients – our work is always collaborative to ensure that you get exactly the sort of landscape you had in mind when you hired us!

Home Landscaping Design by Cardiff Landscaping

Not only is landscaping fun, but it also adds great value to a home. If you plan to sell your home at some point in the future, even the simplest landscaping will go a long way when it comes to raising your property’s value. The important thing here is to not go too far; landscaping should enhance your property, not overpower it. All the landscaping in Cardiff that we do is undertaken with mindfulness to avoid unusual or jarring additions that may negatively affect your property’s value. 

There are further benefits to be had from landscaping too, especially when it is done well. For example, landscaping is a wonderful way to put your mark on your home – after all, you built or bought this home with your hard-earned money, so why shouldn’t it be a canvas on which to paint your vision? Our Cardiff landscaping services are a custom paintbrush to paint this vision with!

Considerations to Make Before Landscaping in Cardiff

When we create landscaping plans for our clients, we ask them to consider certain things – this helps us create a sort of mental mood board for the final landscape they want. For instance; 

  • You need to differentiate between your needs and wants – you may need a garden large enough for you kids to play in, while also wanting a ceramic birdbath that your kids may end up breaking. Listing down needs and wants helps identify contradictions and allows you to play around with ideas;  
  • Remember to be patient throughout the process, and be open to change; especially when it comes to deciding between contradicting wants and needs. If we rush through your landscaping, we won’t be able to do as good of a job as we usually would – and you won’t get the long term results you deserve; 
  • Another way to find inspiration is to spend more time in your garden and patio – not doing anything, just observing. What direction does the sunlight hit from most often? What’s the wind like? What additions would make you more comfortable? What would you like to avoid adding? You may take notes or do some rough sketches once you’ve spent sufficient time studying this space; 
  • Your landscaping zone, also called the hardiness zone, determines which plants will survive long term. In Cardiff, some plants grow well in the frost-free growing season of March, while others thrive in the summer heat. All your plants must thus be planted on a carefully planned schedule;

Cardiff Landscaping FAQs

If this is your first time considering garden landscaping, then you may be feeling overwhelmed or panicky. We know the process sounds complicated at first glance, but landscaping is not something you have to worry about at all. We offer a wide range of landscaping solutions and garden maintenance services, making us one of the leading garden and green services companies in Cardiff near you.

Landscaping is a wonderful way to put your mark on your home. Studies show that spending time outdoors and in the fresh air reduces stress and improves both physical and mental health. When you have the landscape of your dreams, you will naturally be inclined to spend much more time outdoors. And also, the more plants and trees you are surrounded with, the cooler your house will feel, and features like retaining walls – which are used to prevent erosion in houses on slopes or hills – will extend the life of your home significantly!

If you plan to sell your home at some point, even the simplest landscaping will go a long way when it comes to raising your property’s value. This price advantage depends on the nature of landscaping done but can range from 5.5 per cent to 12.7 per cent. A landscaped patio alone could improve your home’s value by 12.4 per cent! The important thing here is to not go too far; landscaping should enhance your property, not overpower it.

When you are about to put a house on the market, you may wonder if adding a beautiful green space to it before selling it is a good idea. The answer in most cases is yes because landscaping can add significant value to a house – thus allowing you to sell it at a higher price. A garden that is colourful and carefully planned can add around 10 per cent more value to a residential property.

Your landscaping zone, also called the hardiness zone, determines which plants will survive in the long run. In the UK, the Royal Horticulture Society has classified several hardiness zones based on the typical temperatures and soil quality. Cardiff lies in Zone 9a according to the Horticulture Society’s scale, and in Zone H4 according to the RHS scale. This means that temperatures in the frost-free growing season range from -6.7 to -3.9 C, while summer temperatures are hardly higher than 32 C.

When taken as part of the overall taxable income, landscaping falls in the non-deductible category of your annual tax returns. However, there is an exception made upon the sale of the property. Usually, a landscaping tax deduction is availed only after you have sold your house, or if you are someone who runs a business from home. Moreover, a landscaping tax deduction normally includes any major work that you have undertaken.

With the arrival of winters, you might be wondering whether you can landscape your garden in the chilly winds and the frost. The answer is ‘yes’, and by no means should your garden be out of bounds in this, or any other season, so to speak. Contrary to popular belief, landscaping should ideally go on for all 12 months of the year.
