GARDEN DESIGN IS IN THE DETAIL

Garden design is about creating ideas while balancing the elements that influence your garden space. But its also about presenting and communicating those ideas across to you, so you get a clear picture of what your design is going to look like. For this we use the latest in CAD software guaranteeing that all our designs are presented in 3d , colour and to scale. We take pride in proffesionally presented designs that you can feel proud to show your friends and family.

 

Typically my design style is for practical designs with strong lines and structure, finished with lush, full planting, all designed for year round interest.

I include you, the client, at all stages of the design so that you feel you have a garden which is very much part of your own personality and taste. Many people have a strong idea of what they may want in their garden, but part of my job is not only to deliver that, but also to give you ideas, thoughts and options, which you may not have considered. The concept designs are thoroughly discussed and considered and then a final design is created from that point.

DESIGN PACKAGES

I have 3 design packages available to chose from depending on the scale of your project


GARDEN DESIGN - BESPOKE

 

This is my standard garden design option, which provides clients with the full design service. The bespoke package takes you step by step through our design process from the initial consultation to the finished master plan. The only item that is not included in this package is  a detailed planting plan, these are optional and dealt with separately if required. If you have a medium to large garden, complicated levels, don't want to complete your own survey and require fully specified scale plans to work from - then this is the option for you. One of the great benefits of the bespoke design option is that I present the whole design to you over several meetings in the comfort of your own home, where I can explain and discuss the details. I also provide material samples, leaving them with you so you don’t ever have to make any rushed decisions. The bespoke design service ensures you get a great design for your space that is unique to you.

GARDEN DESIGN - LITE

Our slimline garden design package

 

The Garden Design LITE package is a slimmed down design service for clients on a budget. It offers great value for money and provides clients with great garden design ideas for their space. It's ideal for clients who have a limited budget for their project as a whole or for clients that require ideas for a part of their garden. Not all gardens are suited to our Garden Design LITE option. Large gardens and gardens with complex levels will require our BESPOKE package. 

My Garden Design LITE package works a little differently. There is still a consultation, this is the essential starting pointing for a design and we discuss the job, carry our a design brief and take some basic details, measurements and photo. But then the client completes their own survey and sends us the information. We will then produce your garden design package and post and/or email the finished garden designs. It's as simple as 1-2-3. You get a professional design for your garden in just a few weeks.

GARDEN DESIGN - PLANTING

 

The Garden Design PLANTING package focuses solely on the plants, providing the finishing touch to any garden. The plants in many ways are what make the garden and the choice of planting really does give a garden its style and character. My planting plans break a garden down, border by border and detail the exact plant combinations throughout the garden. When designing planting plans I first need to take into account soil type, position and aspect before we can select a plant and we are firm believers in the old saying 'right plant, right place'. There is little point choosing plants which, for example, love full sun and free draining soil and trying to plant them in a shady, damp border as they won't thrive in that position. I’ll discuss the style of planting you would like for your garden including you're favourite colours and plants. I’ll then produce a 2D scale layout plan detailing all relevant borders including a plant schedule, which details Latin names, pot sizes and quantities.

FOR CLIENTS THAT REQUIRE THE COMPLETE PLANTING SERVICE, IN ADDITION TO THE PLANTING DESIGN, I CAN ALSO SUPPLY ALL THE PLANTS AT GREAT TRADE PRICES AND ARRANGE TO BE ON SITE TO TAKE DELIVERY AND SET OUT ALL THE PLANTS, I’lL EVEN PLANT THEM FOR YOU.
