Garden Design

Our garden design service is an area that is so important to modern landscaping. This is because there are so many different types and styles of bespoke modern technology and outdoor garden materials at affordable prices. Having these on your garden design plan is a great way to track the project throughout as well as working with our in house designer you can have a full elevation drawing, full colour plans and the option to have your project managed from start to finish. We work out all the maths on steps, level climbs, elevation changes and a full scope of works from the first dig out to planting at the last stage. We will separate the full project into phases that will match to a payment plan and time scales to ensure peace of mind throughout the whole harden design project.

Why employ a garden designer?
Employing the services of a professional garden designer has many benefits that save you money in the long term.

  1. A garden designer will save you time and money by designing a garden that suits your budget and needs by matching materials suitable to the budget and providing a full package of design drawings, scopes of works for the garden build to commence.
  2. A professional garden designer will have the experience and knowledge to take a full brief and translate this into an easy to understand design – full of creative and innovative hard (paths, terraces) and soft (plants) landscaping ideas.
  3. Your garden designer will be a trained in horticulture with the ability to choose and place combinations of plants that suit the climate, soil, and aspect.
  4. The designer is also fully trained to handle all of the technical aspects of the design – from dealing with complex slopes, levels and drainage issues through to drawing complex construction drawings for contractors to work off.

A well designed and built garden is a long-term investment that adds value to your home – and personal enrichment as you use & entertain in the garden! The process garden designers go through to achieve your garden aspirations for a full design implementation.

Initial consultation
This will involve discussions about your planned use and function of the garden, what you like and dislike, your budget and your preferred style of planting and the features you want included.

Site survey
We will take a full set of measurements of your garden and based on these, prepare a full design brief and site analysis.

Presentation drawings
Once the design brief has been agreed, we will prepare a set of presentation drawings incorporating the outline design of the plan. This will include an outline aerial plan, perspective drawings and side elevations plus a mood board of planting ideas and materials so you can really visulise how the design will work.

Planting plan
Once you are happy with the outline design, we prepare a detailed planting plan showing placement of plant varieties, quantities, spacing and a planting schedule so we can get quotes for suppliers.

Construction drawings
Next, we prepare detailed construction drawings including specifications for materials on which the garden quotation will be based.
