Garden Design

Gardens and Plants can help you to create your dream garden: Somewhere you want to spend time in, an extra room outside of your house, a place to enjoy and relax, to watch the birds, bees, butterflies going about their business and also being blessed with beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers that are constantly changing throughout the seasons.

Gardens and Plants is a family run business providing highly experienced garden consultancy services with anything from straight landscape design service, through planting plans to a complete design, supply and fit. The three areas we focus on are: Beauty – Practicality – Budget.

2D Garden Schematics are to scale. Dimensions can be added to help landscapers estimate costs

The first meeting is so important because here we can listen to you, collecting your thoughts about your garden; what you like, what you dislike, the style you are looking for, colour preferences and practical requirements. We can get a feel for the space, the issues that need to be addressed, feel the ambience, see the environment we will be working with, understand the aspects of planting areas and test the soil condition. Then, once back in the office, we collect our thoughts and brainstorm ideas until we have one or more designs that we think you will love.

Using computer software we draw our design(s) and present them to you explaining the thought process that led us to the solution(s).

The schematic plan is to scale and will show your garden layout once the work is completed.  It can be used for DIY projects or to get cost estimates from your chosen landscaper.

Full planting plans can be provided with monthly care instructions for your gardener.

Planting is key to our designs. With over 20 years horticultural experience and several RHS medals Jan has a proven plant knowledge record.

Depending on needs and budget, Gardens and Plants can provide planting recommendations in any form, from a simple buying list up to a full planting plan with online database of plants and monthly care instructions. These care instructions can be used to help you to communicate instructions to your gardener.

Tree choice is seldom straight forward, in fact it is extremely easy to plant the wrong tree in the wrong position, and mistakes can be expensive. Our tree selection advisory service can help you to avoid the common mistakes and save you money as well.

There are a number of ways to view the planting information.

If you love plants and want a friendly, caring, experienced and knowledgeable garden designer then call Jan on 07745 555 382 or Howard on 07840 262 252 or leave a message via the contact form and we will be happy to arrange a visit.
