Having a garden designed is something special – you are having an asset created! Think of a garden as another room, a space for pleasure, contemplation and inspiration. A garden is a room that will add so much more to your home than just value. Our creative garden design services will help you realise your dream garden.

Garden Design is an important path to travel in creating your exterior space the way you want it, within the context of your existing garden and to ultimately make you, the owner achieve what you need from it.

Site consultation

A site visit is the first stage. We will discuss your requirements and get a feel for the garden and what can be done. It is important that all the family has a say at this stage to avoid unnecessary changes later on.

Usually design ideas, and horticultural advice are offered at the first visit, which may be all you need. This can be followed up with a site report as required. After this initial consultation you may wish to go ahead with commissioning a design

Garden design

A return visit will be necessary to get more information about the site to be redesigned. A survey will be needed to create a scaled drawing, notes taken, photographs and soil samples will also be done. Often on difficult, large or gardens of varying slopes and levels an external Chartered Land Surveyor will be required which can be sourced on your behalf. It is important to get as clear and correct representation of the garden at this stage to improve the quality of the work to be carried out once designed.

Think twice before you pull out those ‘weeds’....

Conversation between God and St. Francis Assisi

GOD: Frank, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there? What happened to dandelions, violets, thistles and stuff that I started aeons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abondon. The nectar from the long lasting blossoms attract butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colours by now. But all I see are those green rectangles.
St. Francis: It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling you flowers "weeds" and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass.
God: Grass? But it's so boring. It's not colourful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees, only grubs and earthworms. It's tempermental with temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there?
St. Francis: Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn.
God: The spring rains and warm weather probably make the grass grow really fast. That must make the homeowners happy.
St. Francis: Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it sometimes twice a week.
God: They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?
St. Francis: Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags.
God: They bag it? why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?
St. Francis: No Sir. Just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.
God: Now let me get this straight. They fertilize the grass so it will grow. And when it does grow they cut it off and pay to throw it away?
St. Francis: Yes, Sir.
God: These earthlings must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work.
St. Francis: This will be hard to believe, Lord. When the grass stops growing, they drag out hoses and pay more to water it so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.
God: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn they fall to the ground and form a blanket to keep moisture in and protect the trees and bushes. As they rot, the leaves form compost to enhance the soil. A natural circle of life.
St. Francis: You had better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away.
God: No. In winter how do they protect shrub and tree roots and keep the soil moist and loose?
St. Francis: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves.
God: And where do they get this mulch?
St. Francis: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.
God: Enough! St. Catherine, What movie is scheduled for us tonight?
St. Catherine: "Dumb and Dumber" Lord. It's a real stupid movie about...........
God: Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis.

Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our clients are saying...

All work carried out by Paul has been exactly as requested and to a very high standard. Will always recommend.

J. Redfearn

Paul and his team transformed my garden. What was at first a mess of garden waste became a light and tidy space. We’re in dialogue for the next phase and he has some great ideas I’d like to progress in the Spring.

B. Ngai

Paul did an excellent job extending a patio area. He used reclaimed sleepers to shore up the grass bank and found similar paving slabs to complete the seating area. Very well done and he worked very hard. Would recommend his services.

Stevie

I can highly recommend Paul. He has transformed our garden from a jungle to a landscaped slope which we delight in looking at from our kitchen window. Overall an excellent job which we hope he will have the time to maintain long term.

M. Norman

I needed my garden tidying up and an overgrown and unruly plant invading from my neighbour’s garden sorting out. Paul knew what to do and got the job done very efficiently leaving my garden with well nourished soil and replanted. I’m very happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone.
