Will you also build the garden?
No. We supply design only (and planting advice) services. Our detailed design work comes ready to be passed on to contractors for tender. We can, however, help you to identify and appoint a landscape contractor and act as site inspector during the build.
How do you decide upon which plants to use?
Once planting areas have been identified, we start by deciding on appropriate structural elements (trees and shrubs) before adding a generous palette of perennials, grasses and bulbs; all calculated to provide year round interest. We then source plants from top trade nurseries and arrange for delivery to your site.
How long does the whole process take?
Can I incorporate wildflowers?
How do you generate your design?
I’d like a beautiful garden but don’t have time for its maintenance.
Will you design to revamp just a specific or problems area, or will you only consider entire gardens for redesign?
This could be a particularly tricky area of your garden because of changes in levels, or perhaps very wet or shady – or perhaps you’d love to introduce a garden office but need help identifying the best possible site.
Our own home studio nestles beautifully into a steeply sloping site beside our home and was recently installed as one element of the landscape redesign.
Depending on the nature of the challenge you face, we will apply appropriate elements of the other processes outlined to arrive at the right solution.
We are always more than happy to work alongside other teams of contractors or specialists.
How do I know the plants will thrive in my site?
How do I know your design will be ecologically friendly?
I prefer not to take on any project that is likely to result in a detrimental ecological impact to the site.
