I would like my garden redesigning - where do I start?

Are you tired of looking at your dull, uninspiring garden but don't know where to begin to redesign it? Now is the time to call in a garden designer.

A designer can help you to identify how you would like to use your garden and the best ways to achieve this within your budget. A garden designer will help design your outdoor space so that it links with your house or surrounding landscape, includes the key elements you and your family require and looks great.

The images in this blog show recent gardens that I have created, with before and after shots highlighting the differences. During the design process I create my designs in plan view, 3D visualisations and animations so the client can get a real feel for the garden before signing off the design.

The first stage of the process is an Initial Consultation meeting, which usually lasts between 1-2hrs. During this meeting I will take a full brief from my client, by asking key questions to determine exactly how and when they would ideally like to use their garden and assessing the pros and cons of their current space.

Following this meeting, I produce a Fee Proposal which details each Stage of redesigning a garden and my fees.
