Grand Designs – Planning Your GardenAdvice, Planning, Garden
Whether you’ve just moved into a new build and are starting with a blank canvas or your established garden needs a makeover, planning a garden can seem like a daunting task. There are many factors to consider to ensure that your garden is your little slice of paradise.
What’s the Use?
Forget about design, what do you want from your garden? This is the crucial first question to ask yourself before sketching out ponds, vegetables patches and patios. Do you want a sociable garden equipped for hosting BBQs and garden parties? Do you have children or grandchildren who will want space to run and play? Do you want a quiet summer house retreat to escape to? Knowing how you want your garden to function will allow you to decide the elements that shape the design.
How much gardening and upkeep do you want to do once the makeover is complete? The green-fingered amongst us will opt for a garden that will provide year-round maintenance. You’ll need to consider the planting, layout and of course a shed to house all the necessary equipment.
If you want a hassle-free garden, think about a patio or decking that will look smart and not require you to mow lawns or pick weeds. Choose containers or raised planters for splashes of colour, and evergreen shrubs such as Fatsias, Aucubas and Hebes.
Use gardening magazines and Pinterest to get inspiration for your design. Sketch out ideas and use online apps like the Better Homes & Gardens planning tool to visualise the space and layout. We can work from your designs, we will consult with you through from the initial site survey through to completion to bring your dream garden to life. We build your bespoke decking and fencing onsite, our skilled carpenters have the knowledge and experience to make the most of the space, whether there are awkward angles or sloped, uneven terrain. Our sheds and summerhouses are all hand built to order, so there’s no need to think inside the box! A functional toolshed, an artist’s studio, reading nook or man cave – we can transform your garden into a space to enjoy all year round.
