Hard landscaping made to look easy

Whether you’d like the focus to be on providing you with a new and practical construction in your back garden, or you’d like to add some colour with flowers, plants or a new lawn, we can help you in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. Get in touch with Shoots & Roots today.

From raised beds to new garden walls and paving areas, we use the best natural materials our garden landscapers can provide. Enjoy the perfect outdoor environment all year round, whether you have an idea of how you’d like the garden to look, or you’d like to rely on our team to come up with creative designs.

What’s more being understanding of today’s busy lifestyle, we understand the requirement of ‘low maintenance’ gardens but these can still be attractive spaces.

Dig outs/levelling

We can offer dig outs with machines to create levels within the garden and remove the spoil with approved contractors.

Retaining walls

We understand that flat gardens are desirable or sometimes there is a need to create different levels. Retaining walls can be of brick, natural stone, timber sleepers, block and render etc. Different level raised beds within a garden can be achieved with walls adding interest and height to a garden.

Water Features

Water in a garden has many benefits to us and nature. Simple water features with stone monoliths, or blade waterfalls out of a wall can give that therapeutic /calming sound of running water. It can also be used to drown out noise from traffic etc. Ponds are a source of life for all sorts of animals and insects, with different tiers, waterfalls we can create tranquillity within your garden.

Structures – Pergolas etc

A garden should always be a journey, creating almost different compartments within itself adding mystery and intrigue. You can do this with Pergolas, Screens, fencing and of course plants. Adding height with a pergola can help block out an area that is overlooked, but with a climber to soften it can become a real focal point. These can be steel, timber etc in construction. We also can build simple timber frame garden rooms with wood effect coloured cladding, pvc windows and doors and insulated. Add electrics to make it a fully usable room.

Garden lighting /electrics

Using the garden at night to relax/entertain is enhanced by creative and practical lighting. We can build walls with integral lighting, add to an existing structures or use to make those specimen trees /flower beds become real focal points at night. Outdoor sockets etc.

Fancy a new planting scheme or a wood fired pizza oven?

When you think of a garden, the first thing that probably comes to your head is the colour of the flowers and grass – it really is the main performer, like a soprano in a choir it really is main show stopper in any garden setting.
Why not add an outdoor kitchen or wood fire oven to complete the look? Call us to discuss your ideas.

Turfing/New lawns

A garden without a lawn is like tonic without Gin. Lawns add that soft element to any garden scheme ,are great ,safe play surfaces and a place for nature to thrive. A well maintained lawn is a thing of beauty. We can create lawns of any size using a quality source of turf.
