Go to our website to see a few of our designs or contact us. Most people have never had a garden designed before and we're happy to talk through the options.

Our first meeting together where we can:

Discuss your needs/ideas for the garden
Look at a portfolio of previous gardens we've designed
Give you an idea of the build costs for some of these gardens
Decide if we want to work together.

After the meeting, we'll send you an estimate for the design costs, if required. Hopefully, you'll then decide to go ahead with the design

We'll carry out a detailed site survey of your garden, including measurement of levels (always important in Sheffield gardens).

A detailed written brief is developed with you at this stage - vital to ensure that the garden is designed to suit your tastes and needs

Based upon the survey and design brief, we'll develop draft plans of your new garden.

Following discussion of the draft plans, the final, detailed scale plans are produced.

At this stage, you can either choose to get your own contractor to specify & build the garden from the plans, or commission us to produce detailed specifications and construction drawings

Detailed specifications and construction drawings can be provided to give your contractors all the information needed to build the garden to the final plan.

This will help with tendering so that when you receive quotations you'll know that you are comparing like with like.

We can arrange for one or more of our recommended award-winning contractors to quote for building your garden

Monitoring the building of your garden can be stressful and time-consuming.

We highly recommend that you ask our designer to monitor the build for you. The best gardens result when she is available to make sure that the garden develops as planned and according to the original intention.

Planting is not just about including your favourite plants in the garden. It is an integral part of the design, as is the lighting plan, and must work with the style and structure of the garden to create the desired effect.

Our annual maintenance visits are designed to advise you as your garden matures over the years. We may even be able to help you with the physical maintenance: pruning, reviewing & rearranging, planting, as is necessary.

Each garden we design is different because it is planned for a particular client, responding to the detailed brief. We see client and designer as a team, using the designer's expertise to meet the client's needs.

We have been planning and building gardens for many years.

Garden lighting is exciting, particularly in the winter months. Many of our clients work long hours and, having paid for a beautiful garden, want to see it when they get home from work.

Garden lighting highlights parts of the garden, hides others and gives depth to what is otherwise a black curtain in your living room window. We think some gardens look better at night!

The design of the lighting works with the plants, style and structure of your garden. It is important, therefore, that the lighting scheme is drawn up by your original designer. Ideally plants and lights should be installed at the same time.

Lights can be fitted later if you wish, but it is relatively cheap to install cables when you have your garden built, and so avoid future disruption. We design lighting schemes and supply and install good quality fittings.

Qualifications/Experience
Good designers have to know about so much:
The following principles will give you an idea of the way we'll work with you:balance, proportion, shape and style; surveying, including levels; selection and use of materials; lighting and electrical installation; design and construction of water features; plant selection and maintenance; project management; construction specifications; drainage; monitoring of work onsite etc.

We are constantly updating our knowledge by taking regular courses.

One of our most important skills is that of communication.
Attention to Detail. Clients who work with us want a thorough professional job and usually appreciate that gardens are better if not rushed. We are often booked a few months ahead.Team Work. The best gardens are a result of team work between you, the designer and the contractor(s). We work with selected, local, award-winning contractors all the time.Integrity at all times.
We do what we say and we say what we mean.
Good Client Relationships are paramount. We must listen to your needs if we are to give you a superb garden to your brief.
