Bell Landscapes is consistently involved in a wide variety of interesting projects – many of which have been published. This page will showcase some of our current media releases and print publications.
Our projects were selected for these publications because they deliver garden designs which offer a balance between functionality and beauty. Correct placement and scale of plants and materials is critical to the success of these projects, which maximise usable space whilst still including enough textures, colours and contrasting shapes to add interest, beauty and depth to the space.
We hope the projects we have displayed here offer you some inspiration for your project
