Garden Design

designCreating inspirational designs to suit lifestyle, budget and finding solutions to difficult spaces.


To maximise the full potential of your garden, you can utilise our professional Garden Design Service. Our qualified Designer will show you how to gain the most from the outside area, using all the space and providing movement and flow around your garden.


The design process follows four stages, each of which are priced individually and collected at each stage so you can take the project as far as you would like.


Consultation – For a very small fee our designer will come and view the garden and ask lots of questions regarding what you would like to achieve from it and talk to you openly and freely about their ideas.


Survey – The second visit, if required, is to collate measurements, take photos and gather all relevant information for the scaled drawing.


Sketch Proposal – At this stage, the designer has created the design and illustrated it in an initial drawing to scale. This is a simplified version to discuss before proceeding to the presentation plan.


Presentation Plan – This is the final drawing, which will be presented to you in the form of an A2 technical drawing in a protective cover which will be talked through and explained. It shows all the intricate details of your new garden including elevations and is yours to keep.


Planting Plan – Again, this is a scaled drawing of the areas to be planted. Our designer will run through your wish list as regards to your plants. This will include such things as budget, style and at the same time survey the areas to be planted (if we have not already been working for you). A detailed plan will then be drawn including the location of all the plants, along with their Latin names, quantity needed, size of pot and size at maturity. Louise is able to supply all plants also.

“Dear Louise, Thank you for your inspirational plan for revitalising our garden. You listened carefully to us, and have been instrumental in blending our ideas together with your knowledge and expertise, which has produced a garden design that we are very excited about, thanks again”. - Peter & Angela Norrington, Chelmsford

“Dear Louise, Thanks for the great design! A plain patch of grass is now a garden. Thanks for all your hard work and enthusiasm. Our back garden has drawn many admirers and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to others. We were particularly impressed with the care taken to consult and involve us in the planning stages so that our wishes and preferences were fully taken into account, while we also benefited from your original and creative ideas. The translation of the design to garden has been brilliant!”. - Mr & Mrs C Black, Hutton, Brentwood, Essex
