One to One Garden Design Consultancy Service

For those who want guidance upon how to reform part of their garden themselves, or wish to gradually update their garden over time, our Consultancy program will be ideal.


Ken will come to your garden and spend all the time necessary with you to discuss all the ideas or dilemmas you have.

He will walk round the garden with you to get the ‘Feel’ of the space and then sit with you to discuss the things you would like and work out a plan with you to accommodate them.

The best thing is, that while going around the garden you can make as many notes you wish because nothing is left untouched.


The first and foremost discussion will be on what you want from your garden. A person wanting to generate an old English garden to one that wishes to use the space for entertaining with minimal attendance are poles apart.

The best thing then is the open discussion on what can go where and the best materials for it. You can list all the information with general comments regarding the ideal depth of an area’s foundation or an ideal material to make sure it’s right.


Ideal plants are always based upon the type and condition of the soil. Beautiful blue hydrangeas and azaleas will need acidic soil and a smoke tree will grow best in an alkaline soil. 

Perennials used to be planted in a rotation of colour. Red – Blue – White and so on. Now we prefer drifts of one plant or grass with a focal point such as a sculpture or a proud Agapanthus. Companion planting can be discussed or a choice of structured plants that enjoy the shade.

Water & Lighting Features

Subtle water features add interest and emit a calmness that is ideal for a seating area and today there are numerous types of garden lights from spot lights to water lights to extend the time in the garden through the evening.
