garden design

bringing your ideas for your garden to life

Having worked as a graphic designer for over 30 years and having a passion for gardening it was quite natural to extend my design skills to garden design and planning. I can offer a garden design service working with you from initial sketches through to final planting to transform your new garden space or to change your existing garden.

Redesigning your garden should be a joy to do but can be daunting to do yourself. I can make the whole process go smoothly leaving you to enjoy the design process and plant selections without any stress.

New project

It all starts with a visit to your garden to see and discuss what you have and what you would like in terms of design and planting. I will then do a site survey to establish any existing features, such as trees, favourite plants, drains, fences, access to the garden etc. A soil test, shade and sun areas etc will all be noted.

Design and implementation

I will then create a design drawn to scale based on my findings and your input which we will then discuss. Then a detailed plan for contractors to follow for hard landscaping (paths, etc) complete with material suggestions. After that sourcing plants and planting out will bring the whole garden to life.

Garden Maintenance

Let me take the hard work out of your garden, who likes to do the weeding? I can keep the lawn looking great, the beds weed free, the shrubs pruned when necessary and do all the planting.
