Soft landscaping specialists
Creating a green space, or landscaping any environment often requires several different skills, all of which we can provide at PLC.

Working closely with your original designs and after visiting your site, we are able to assess just what we need to order and accurately calculate the costs involved.
Turfing / Seeding
Turfing is often the very backbone of a beautiful and ecologically sound environment. PLC use only the very best quality turf, and only the most qualified and experienced landscapers to lay it. Seeding is always an option too. Sometimes it’s more appropriate to develop existing lawns, meadows and other green areas. We can advise on the best choice of seeds that fit with the existing environment in order to
It’s not always practical to have real grass growing in certain areas, simply due to the difficulties associated with maintenance. We can install this quality, low maintenance artificial grass in a way that fits perfectly with the overall aesthetics of the space in which it’s intended. Artificial turf is a popular choice for: roof gardens, playgrounds and sports grounds. It’s a relatively inexpensive and of course highly durable.
We have a wide range of artificial grass to choose from, in different shades and different styles: Mayfair, Belgravia, Cape Verde, Miami, Barcelona, Windsor Premium, Pet Grass and many more. We are more than happy to help you chose an appropriate artificial turf to suit your space, should you wish. More and more people are choosing this rather striking alternative to cover up those unsightly hard surfaces.
Planting, Forestation and Reinstating Indigenous Plants
Our landscapers are experienced in planting seasonal bulbs, herbaceous borders, all other plants, shrubs and trees. It’s another standard soft landscaping practice. If you wish, this can also include the careful reinstatement of plants and trees in order to expand existing areas, with a view to improving the overall environment to encourage natural development. With PLC you really can sculp nature! Contact us today and ask about our practical, low maintenance artificial turf.
Tree Preservation Order (TPO)
Where existing trees need to be removed, topped or trimmed etc. it becomes important to check whether there are any TPOs in place. If a TPO exists on your site, you have certain responsibilities to adhere to. You can find out more information about TPOs on GOV.UK.
Should it become necessary to do any maintenance on trees under a TPO, applications must be submitted to the local authority in order to carry out the work. Any maintenance work on a tree covered by a TPO must be carried out under specialist arboricultural advisement and done by a competent and qualified professional. PLC can take care of all of this for you. We will:
- Check for TPOs on your site
- Submit the necessary applications to the local authority on your behalf
- Employ one of our suitably qualified landscapers or tree surgeons to carry out the work
Fencing and Feature Construction
We have a very knowledgeable and experienced team that are capable of completing a variety of fencing and incidental construction projects you may have as part of your designs. Repairs to existing fencing and structures can also be arranged without a problem. As always, greater details and more accurate quotes are available after an initial site visit.

At PLC we develop rooftop gardens that will make you forget you’re on the roof! Rooftop gardens have become a necessary trend in London in recent years, oxygenating as well as beautifying even the most modest spaces. And when you combine a naturally breath-taking London skyline view, with a beautiful, ecological as well as functional garden, you really are creating a space where people will want to spend time.
Why build a rooftop garden?
Urban London can be a daunting place when you spend all day, every day in it. Office buildings are a veritable home for so many workers these days, and a green, natural space, where they can feel the sun on their face would be a very welcome idea. But you needn’t stop there. Yes, it can be a place where your workers take a break, but it can also be a place where visitors, clients and customers can also relax and take refreshment. Perhaps with a little construction, you could even turn an area of your rooftop garden into a meeting room or extended cafeteria.
Popular places to install include:
- Colleges and Universities
- Department stores
- Bars and restaurants
- Hotels and spas
- Luxury residential properties
