Our Online Design Service provides your bespoke garden design at a fraction of the cost of our All-inclusive design service because we work together with you as partners.
We send you our Design Assessment form for you to complete. This gives us all the ideas that you would like in your garden.
You then measure the garden using our step by step instructions. This saves us travelling to you especially if your garden is a new build or one that is fairly rectangular and flat. To help us with its surroundings, you can email us with as many photographs of the garden as you like from all the different angles and positions.
From your measurements, we draw a bespoke scaled drawing of your new garden setting out all the main garden elements such as the structures, walls and pathways together with the ideal size of the patio and all the ideas that you would like in your Bespoke garden.
We send the garden concept plan to you by email. We discuss the plan with you over the phone and refine it to make it perfect for your needs.
We then update the plan and post two final plans to you so you can build your garden over time or pass the second copy to your local landscaper for its construction.
If you would like a complete planting plan for the different areas as to where the sun is. Just add it on through our Optional Extras.
All our optional extras are listed below. Just click on the extra service you require.
Ken was very easy to work with. He is clearly very experienced. He listened to us patiently and delivered a design which is what we exactly wanted. Ken has good social skills and is very warm and friendly. We highly recommend him.
Once we receive the measurements of your garden, we draw to scale all the different areas, structures and planting borders so everything fits within the garden boundary.
If the garden is a new-build and the length of the side fences are about the same and the back fence is about the same as the house plus its side gate. Therefore, one measurement for its length and a second for its width will enable us to portray the rough positioning of the different areas and structures.
Don’t forget the more detail that is used in measuring the garden the better the out scaled drawing will be.
We carry out the same detailed topographical survey whatever the size of the garden.
We record everything within the garden’s perimeter, such as its retained structures, tree positions with their height and canopy spread, and any slopes and levels that are within the garden’s boundary.
We record where the garden is facing as the various types of plants vary by the amount of sun they receive.We also record its surrounding buildings as these will also impact on the amount of sun the different areas of the garden will enjoy.
We carry out the same detailed topographical survey as we do for a small garden. We find a larger garden offers space for more structures or larger planting areas; therefore, our survey fee reflects this as it will take more time to complete.
The survey records everything within the garden’s perimeter including any slopes, levels and tree positions with their height and the spread of their canopy. It records any shaded areas that will have an impact by the hours of sunlight the garden will enjoy.
Again, we record any surrounding buildings that will have an impact of the garden’s light.
Planting plans are based upon the individual preference of our client. We offer suggestions based upon the size and character of the garden and the favourite colours the client, as well as the location of the garden.
A small garden will benefit from a limited number of colours as it will enhance the size of the garden.
A large garden can embrace larger borders with more colours as they can be separated by pathways or lawn. A large garden is able to include larger shrubs and trees, so the garden can offer more focal points and resting points.
We encourage our client to advise us on their individual preference. We then offer suggestions based upon these favourites and the garden’s character, as well as the view of the garden.
Walk round illustrations are perfect for those who wish to see how the garden will look once all its construction is finished.
We produce four images from different positions of the garden, so you can really get a feel of your new garden.
For those clients who wish to appoint a landscaper that is unknown to them, it is recommended that the construction is monitored throughout its progress.
We can do this by the landscaper updating us by regular emails, or by on-site visits. Fees for this depend upon the number of visits, email monitoring, and the complexity and size of the garden.
