Why ask a Garden Designer to create your perfect garden?

I'm often asked why use a garden designer to create your perfect garden. Well, there are many reasons but here's just three:

  1. A garden designer will take the time to talk about how you would like to use your garden in an ideal world, and consider the existing site and changes in the household over time to ensure that the garden is built for the long term.

  2. A garden designer will take design influences from the wider landscape, architecture, interior style and product and material knowlege to create a design individual to you and your garden.

  3. A garden designer will work with you through every stage of the project from the initial brief through to planting and can offer maintenance to ensure your garden is built to stay true to the design and flourishes over time.

As they say pictures speak louder than words so here's some before and after shots of some of my recent projects which help to demonstrate the above.

Wow, these garden transformations are absolutely stunning! It's incredible to see how a skilled garden designer can completely revitalize outdoor spaces, turning them into havens of beauty and functionality.

I couldn't agree more with the reasons you've highlighted for why it's beneficial to work with a garden designer. From tailoring the design to suit your specific needs and lifestyle to drawing inspiration from various sources to create a truly unique space, it's clear that a professional touch makes all the difference.
