First Garden Design is a landscape and garden design practice based in Oxfordshire, creating bespoke gardens with a focus on your individual lifestyle.
We have designed gardens for the last 25 years. Our artistic integrity, imagination, and hands-on knowledge have resulted in an exciting diverse portfolio of over 150 successful projects.
We work with clients throughout Oxfordshire and its surrounding counties and London. More-over we are proud to say every garden designed over those years is bespoke to each client and not seen "Down the Road."
Our contemporary designs are excellent for those clients who desire a place to escape. Clean straight lines to reflect the interior’s modern atmosphere.
This can complement the kitchen's porcelain flooring and marble worktops from which you step out onto complimentary paving with surrounding white raised beds and structural plantings. By using horizontal cedar slatted fencing will complete that dream of quietness.
Private London gardens can be very different from those further afield. Long narrow gardens surrounded with high walls or urban gardens with just enough social space for relaxing. Some may be quite shaded from the surrounding houses.
Our London Garden Designs concentrate fiercely on those main factors. Creatively using our long-term knowledge, we ensure every part of the garden is used to its maximum.
If you are looking to update your garden and you require some guidance, our Consultancy Service is the ideal..
With today’s technology and the situation of the Coronavirus virus, we are happy to use the Zoom or FaceTime video conferencing apps.
They are easy to use and enable your consultant to remain on hand each step of the way.
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.
