Bellord Plants, based in Bath, helps people to make the most of their gardens.

I provide garden design, plant advice, planting plans, surveys, planting identification and garden maintenance to Bath and the surrounding counties. 

I use my knowledge and experience to read the garden, talk to the owner and suggest ways to improve that space. You may have just moved to your property and want to know what all the plants are, you may want to radically overhaul the garden, slightly change it or you may simply need some help with gardening. If any one of these scenarios is the case then please contact me. 

Founded in 2009 I have many years experience of the plants, trees, shrubs and landscaping materials that will look really good in your garden.
