Why have a Garden Design for your home?

Having a Garden Design for your home ensures that you think about what you want from your garden and build something that really suits you needs. In the long term it will stop you spending money on not so well thought out ideas and it should also increase the value and saleability of your house should you wish to move.

Its Your Garden not ours.

The emphasis of a good garden design is that it suits your needs.

Sometimes people say to me "How would you design this garden if it was your garden?" but our needs may be very different to yours.

We concentrate on producing practical and inspiring solutions.

Where to start.

Start collecting ideas that you like, cut pictures out of magazines for plants and landscaping elements such as steps, pergolas and water features. Anything that you like. As a designer it is really useful to have this file and it gives a great starting point. Don't worry about whether a plant will survive the hot dry summers and wet winters for now, we can probably find a suitable alternative. This stage is just about collecting ideas. Have a look at the ideas below.

Consider what you want to use the garden for.
