garden design services
Andrea Newill Garden Design provides a creative, practical garden design service to suit your lifestyle and budget. Whether you are looking for a complete redesign of your whole garden, or just part of it, we can help. We can work with existing features or plants that you want to retain, or we can start from scratch. Once the design is drawn up, we can organise and oversee the construction and planting of your new garden and ensure that you are equipped to look after the garden once we leave.
Following a telephone conversation with you, we arrange to meet for up to an hour and a half, at your home. The purpose of the meeting is to establish the specific requirements for your new garden and to talk you through the garden design process. From our discussion, we draw up the written Garden Design Brief and a quote for the design work to be undertaken.
On appointment, we return to carry out a survey of your garden. This gives us information on what the site is like now and what the growing conditions are, to enable us to proceed with designing your new garden. When a site is large and/or complex we will recommend a land survey company to carry out this stage of the process.
Design Presentation Plans
The first stage of the design process is to draw up The Master Plan, a scale plan drawing showing the new design for your garden, with the new structural features and planting areas, as well as any existing features to be retained. Three dimensional visuals can also be produced to bring the plan to life. We will always present you with a concept plan before proceeding to the final drawing.
Construction Detail Drawings
Construction drawings and specifications are produced to provide the detailed information for a landscape contractor to build your garden. This ensures that the garden is built exactly as the designer intended it to be.
The Planting Plan overlays the Master Plan, showing where each plant will be positioned in your new garden. Plants are chosen with great skill to suit the soil and situation that they will be planted in. You will also receive an accompanying Plant Schedule listing all the plants, together with a colour image of each plant.
We can recommend skilled landscape contractors to build your garden and we can also organise quotes and oversee and monitor the construction work to make life easier for you.
Once the garden is built we can organise the planting, supplying top quality plants at competitive prices.
Ongoing Garden Care
Once the garden is planted, it is just the beginning of the journey! Gardens should improve as they mature and need careful and skilled maintenance. We can provide you with written maintenance schedules, or offer an online monthly garden care service which is delivered to your inbox on the first day of each month.
We can also return at regular intervals to offer advice and guidance.
Advice & Consultancy
If you are simply looking for guidance with your garden, whether it is design ideas, or planting advice for a difficult site, we also offer this as a standalone service.
