First Garden Design are bespoke garden designers specialising in designing modern, courtyard, and classical gardens for clients throughout London, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, the Cotswolds and the surrounding counties
Our garden design practice is in Bicester, Oxfordshire. We work with clients throughout Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and the surrounding counties to London.
Through our extensive wealth of experience, we ensure that every new client opens an opportunity for us to design a garden that is not displayed elsewhere.
Our bespoke designs include every type of garden, whether it be a suburban town garden, an inner-city courtyard, or a rural country garden, we take the same meticulous care to design that perfect space to meet our client’s individual needs.
Our ethos is to provide a space where one can relax, escape from the hectic day, or to just unwind. Our experience spans over 25 years and using that knowledge we ensure our design provides an individual and personal environment.
Using the data from a detailed survey and client brief, we build a concept design to show the different areas of the garden through drawn plans and 3D models. This means one will see how the finished garden will look and feel. This then becomes a discussion document from which we can progress.
Our clients design service is purely bespoke, so your garden refurbishment is fully tailored to meet your personal wish.
To us every garden and client is individual, and our aim is to design a space that fits your individual lifestyle.
London gardens can be very different from those further afield. Roof tops, small gardens or urban garden design are the normal in London.
London Gardens are mostly urban by nature and the rear garden can sometimes be small or long and narrow; some don’t even direct access.
If you are looking to update your garden and wishing to obtain guidance upon some aspect or element of your garden,
Ken Haken, the head landscape designer of the First Garden Design team, will gladly come and meet you at your garden to discuss your requirements of your project.
During this time lockdown and being wary of physical contact, we can provide a 2D or 3D scaled plan of the garden based on your measurements and garden photographs.
We provide a general layout of the garden based upon your measurements and completion of the questionnaire sent to you by email. This is returned to us by email.
We will draw to scale the different garden areas, such as paving, walling, and pathways, and a planting plan based upon your plant likes and dislikes, as well as the best areas to plant them.
Retained or new Structures such as Sheds and Greenhouses will be positioned in the retained places as set out in your measurements.
Ken Haken, the head designer of First Garden Design, has designed gardens for many years, from small city courtyards to modern town gardens, to designing natural rural country gardens.
