Garden Design

Every garden is different as is every gardener therefore depending upon your level of need, I can help you with:

a) Advice on design, planting & maintenance
b) Planting plans for part or all of your garden
c) Garden design for part or all of your garden
d) Hands on pruning tuition 
e) Garden mentoring 
f) Exploration and development of your design ideas.


I have long established links with The Gardens Group, 3 garden centres in Dorset and Somerset.  The group offers a full range of quality plants and excellent customer service.          



Tailored to your needs and to your garden, this takes place in your garden beginning with a one hour session.  This is often enough to give you direction and confidence however this initial consultation may lead to more detailed work as outlined below.

The design process is in two stages:
a/ It begins with a detailed assessment of the garden, a discussion about your needs and requirements from the garden.  From this I work on concept sketches which explore different layout ideas for the garden taking into account your brief, the constraints and the opportunities offered by the site. 
b/ The next stage is to incorporate your feedback from the concept sketches into a final drawing; this is when details are worked into the design, for example planting plans, lighting…  The work is presented to you in the format of scaled drawings, for example:
a) Survey drawing 
b) Scaled detailed design drawing
c) Scaled planting plan (s) & plant information and care document
d) Setting out plans
e) Lighting & Electrical plan
f) Drainage & Irrigation plan…..
