Garden Design Services Dorset“I wanted a garden design that looks great, is low maintenance, someplace I can grow vegetables and something that is appropriate for a London terraced house. Annie did all of this, exceeding my expectations. The builder commented on how easy her plans were to interpret so we had no issues along the way.

Two years later I still love my garden and so do my neighbours! It has continued to meet the brief and we love that we don't spend loads of time maintaining and can still really enjoy it while we are eating the salad that we were able to grow. I highly recommend Annie, she listens, gives ideas and takes sincere joy in creating a garden that is loved."

I will visit you in your home for about 1 hour to discuss your requirements. It is helpful at this stage if you write down or think of any ideas or wish lists before I come to see you.

This is an opportunity for me to see your garden and establish how it can be improved with an individual design.

You will be able to see my portfolio of work and go through any questions you may have with regard to the garden design process.

It is a pleasure to have such a friendly and enthusiastic team looking after our garden on a regular basis.."

I will then be able to provide you with a fixed price quotation based upon my understanding of the design brief and your requirements and any budget you may have.

The cost for the design will be dependent on size of the garden and complexity of the project.

I will require a deposit before starting any design work.

Survey and site analysis

A measured survey of the site and soil analysis will be undertaken so that the right planting can be implemented into the design.
