Don't know where to start on your garden design project?

We have a series of articles that aim to help you with your choices of design elements and landscaping materials. Our current garden design articles are:

Garden design consultation visit

When you contact us, we offer an obligation free consultation visit. This allows you to talk to us about the design that will best suit you and your garden. There is no need to commit to anything until you're comfortable with doing so, meaning that the final decision will always be in your hands. The visit will be conducted by one of our professionals with years of experience in garden design, so you can be sure that you're talking to an expert. We will collect all the garden ideas we create and produce a garden planner document using our garden design software.

Site Survey

We can then carry out a site survey of your garden. This will allow us to see what shape your garden is currently in. We will be able to look at how the ground is, where any buildings are situated and plot out existing trees and shrubs. When we've done this, it will help us to get a better kind of idea of the work that will need to be done to create a design for your garden.

Planting design/plans

As part of the garden design process, we will plan out how and where to plant different plants in your garden. A good planting plan should always be created carried out by someone with the right expertise, and that’s exactly what we have to offer. We have years of experience in planting designs, so the garden planting design we create for you will be second to none.

Low Maintenance Garden

For many people, their idea of good garden design is one that is low maintenance. We understand that most people are busy and don't have the time to dedicate to lots of garden maintenance. That’s why we specialise in creating garden designs that are easy to keep in good shape without you needing to put in much maintenance work. We will select the best low maintenance plants for you in our planting design document.

Garden Patios & Garden Paving

If you're looking for a good garden patio or garden paving area, we can help you out with that as well. This is one of the most common things that people want in their garden. It’s also difficult to find professionals who get the job done to a high standard. We have been creating great garden patio and garden paving designs that meet the needs of homeowners and look great at the same time. We can bring trade magazines from suppliers such as Marshall's, Stonemarket, MKM to show you the range of landscape construction materials available.

Garden Fencing

Garden fencing is one of the most important aspects of any garden. If you don't have a good garden fence in place, your garden will never feel complete, and you will be missing out on privacy and protection too. We can bring you a garden fencing solution that is created to meet the precise needs of your garden. It will be protective and in keeping with the rest of your garden’s design.

Garden Decking

A good garden decking area can be fantastic in the summer months when you want to spend more time outdoors. We offer bespoke garden decking designs made with the very best materials available. We will help you make all of the decisions that need to be made when you are choosing a decking design/decking materials (timber decking/ composite decking) that’s right for your garden. We'd be happy to walk you through our portfolio of previous garden decking projects.

Entertainment Areas

Entertainment areas are vital aspects of any garden, and you need to make sure that yours has one too. We can design a space where you'll be able to entertain guests and have a good time in your garden throughout the year. We'll work alongside you to achieve the best outcomes that work for you. To start with, we'll listen to what you want from your garden design and then take things from there.

Family-Friendly Gardens

Any homeowner who has children will want their garden to be as family-friendly as it possibly can be. The safety of your family comes before anything else, and this is something that we understand perfectly well. All of the design features that we implement will help to keep your children safe while they use and enjoy your garden with you.

Cottage Gardens

We can offer garden designs for all kinds of homes and situations. If you want an arrangement that is going to work for your cottage, we will be there to help. We know how to deal with the specific requirements of this kind of garden (for example appropriate planting plans), so you'll be able to rely on us to meet your needs adequately.

Small Gardens

We can offer garden designs for all shapes and sizes of small gardens. Just because you have a small garden does not mean "small" thinking. We have worked in small New Town gardens as well as small new build gardens and can design a garden that is fit for purpose.

Rustic Gardens

Rustic gardens are very popular right now, and we can offer you a design that is both rustic and functional for you. The design details we put in place will keep your garden looking good, with a timeless and tasteful design that you will enjoy spending time in and looking at. We will listen to what you want and think carefully about how to turn your rustic garden dreams into a reality.

Contemporary Gardens

For some people, rustic gardens don't hold much appeal. But don't worry because we can also offer contemporary garden designs that are up to date and feature the latest garden design trends. Our designs are at the cutting edge, and you can take advantage of that by coming to us and talking through your design wants and needs in detail.

Detailed Drawings and 3D Models

When we come up with the design for your garden, we will use detailed design drawings & plans, as well as 3D computer models. This allows us to get everything right and avoid mistakes. It also allows you to see how your garden will look when the design project has been completed. This just goes to show how keen we are to get your garden right and meet all of your needs.

Our staff are qualified gardeners and offer a highly professional garden makeover service. We are always ready to answer any questions you may have.
