Our garden designers in Darlington and Bishop Auckland begin a project with an initial site survey and design concept, which naturally evolves as the project takes its course. As stated above, this process is a collaborative one: we want you to be an involved as you like, getting creative and exploring different options in order to create a garden that you can be proud of.
We then add our expertise to this creative process, suggesting features that would work well in your garden and fit well together. Our design ideas can be tailored to fit gardens both big and small and consider features such as colour, texture, space and height. We also include features such as:
- Hedge Cutting
- Water Features
- Ground Levelling and Landscaping
Once we have agreed upon a design brief, the next step of the project is to decide upon what plants to populate your new garden with. Finding the right signature plants is crucial to establishing a sense of ambience and character to your garden, and it is important to consider plants that work well together and will suit the conditions of your garden.
For example, gardens with a lot of shade and very little areas of exposed natural light will require plants that thrive under those conditions and will not get in each other’s way.
