Garden Design
The Process

As a bespoke service, each design we draw up has its own unique qualities. However, to uphold the unrivalled standards of workmanship we are synonymous with in Ashford, Maidstone, Heathfield and across Kent, your project will pass through the following tried-and-trusted process.

1. Inspiration and Concept

During an initial consultation at your property, we listen to the ideas and concepts inspiring your vision. We will clarify how you intend to use your garden as well as any must-have features and dislikes. If you have any images of similar gardens you like, this is the time to share them.

At this point, we will also walk around your current garden to assess what is and isn’t possible. Aspects we consider here include site dimensions, views, levels, the soil type and access points. We will also ask you to confirm your available budget too.

2. Planning and Design

Accurate scaled plans are integral to successful garden design projects. In order to produce yours, we need to perform a full site survey of your current space. If you already have plans, we will advise whether they are sufficient to proceed with.

The information collated during the survey allows us to draw up a detailed plan based around the ideas and concepts you shared during the initial consultation. This includes construction drawings, where required, as well as details about the colours, styles and textures of your soft and hard landscaping features.


3. Planting Plans and Sourcing

To deliver successful soft landscaping elements, we draw up a detailed planting plan. This takes into account the environmental conditions of your Ashford, Heathfield or Kent-area site, such as microclimate, soil type and aspect. We then select plants that both complement the agreed-upon design and offer year-round interest.

Our Maidstone-based team also sources the necessary hard landscaping features from our trusted suppliers. For paving, we use Marshalls and London Stone, while we buy in decking from SAiGE.

4. Garden Build

On the agreed-upon date, our team arrives promptly to start the physical garden build. We recognise that we work at your home, so we take every step possible to minimise disruption. Our personnel operate with the kind of respect, care and professionalism we would expect ourselves.

Working quickly, but without any compromise in quality, we bring your garden design to life on time and within budget. Our progressive approach and seamless delivery allow us to deliver results that don’t just meet, but exceed, your expectations.
