Planting Plans

What are Planting Plans?

If development works are being carried out on a domestic or commercial property and have been identified as affecting the surrounding landscape, planning departments are now often found to be asking for Planting Plans to go alongside the rest of the planning application.

Planting Plans are a top down plan of the landscaping site, detailing all areas that will have planting in and the types of plant that will be planted there. This can be tailored for a range of applications including housing extensions, individual new builds and large housing development schemes.

In addition to this, development sites may be required to compensate for any trees or hedgerows that are due to be removed as part of the works.

What’s the process?

Initially, our experts will contact you to discuss the project in detail and go through your requirements. This will also give them the opportunity to advise on any specific aspects that may be required as part of the plan, in line with the requirements for the planning application, and to take any photographs or measurements of the existing site.

The Planting Plan will then be put together, including details of the common and botanical name of each plant, the size of each plant and any planting densities. Our consultants will stay in touch with you throughout the process, ensuring that the end result matches your requirements exactly.

Upon completion, you will receive a digital pack in the form of a PDF which can be incorporated into your planning application.


Please see below for a breakdown of what you will receive upon completion of the planting plans. 



A digital (in the form of a PDF) pack consisting of:
  • The common and botanical name of each plant;
  • The quantity of each type of plant;
  • The size/height of each type of plant;
  • The density of planting;
  • How the plants are to be grown - bare root or container grown;
  • An identifying image of each plant.
