GARDEN DESIGN

We provide a professional and experienced garden design service for design conscious homeowners. We create beautiful yet practical gardens which suit our client’s own taste and lifestyle. From small courtyard gardens to large country estates, in traditional or contemporary styles.  We offer a range of services including garden design, construction management, planting installation and styling, organising the whole process for you. We work closely with our clients, paying attention to their needs, to ensure the garden design brief is clear and is interpreted to the final plan. We have experienced landscape contractors, with whom we work, to ensure the garden design process is a smooth transition, from the initial consultation to project completion.

OUR GARDEN DESIGN TEAM ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING PRINCIPLES

Garden Design principle number 1. ‘Classic with a twist’ will always be, our design ethos. Trends are often wasteful and date over time. Gardens should soften a property into the landscape and mature like a fine wine.

Garden Design principle number 2. Each garden should tell a story, exude joy, stir emotions, heighten senses, they’re a place in which memories are made, they should enhance our well-being and promote relaxation. Our gardens provide a physical, visual and emotional journey, we divide each garden into zones by creating a ‘sense of place and belonging’.

Garden Design principle number 3. Consideration is paid to all members of the family including pets and guests. Each garden design encourages play and enjoyment. Whilst gardens need to be a thing of beauty, they also need include human interaction, we encourage the user to walk around and pick ingredients whether that be for a meal or cocktail. Growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs couldn’t be more wholesome or good for the soul. Everywhere you look there must be something of interest and beauty no matter what the season.

Garden Design principle number 4. We’re an eco-friendly garden design team. Always striving to source locally produced stock and materials, recycled materials, upcycled materials, we purchase most of our stock in the root-ball season, procure through sustainable suppliers, repurpose where possible, work with the environment opposed to changing it, implement rainwater harvesting and night watering irrigation systems, reduce the number of chemicals needed to maintain our designs and dedicate specific areas to attract and safeguard both insects and wildlife.

Garden Design principle number 5. Garden Design should respond to the architectural vernacular of each property and geographical cues and the individual culture, lifestyle and taste of each client. We meticulously design every element of a project, bespoke details ensure each garden is just as practical as it is beautiful. The link between internal and external spaces has never been more important, the outside should reflect the inside and vice versa.
