Designing your garden

Consulting, Design & Build

Each client is individual and each garden unique and as a new experience, having your garden designed is exciting but can feel less daunting if you know what to expect.
1. Consultation and Survey

These are the first steps. The Consultation involves an initial free meeting, to talk through your ideas, expectations and needs for your garden. Its an opportunity to look at your outdoor space and understand how you would like to use it. Following this, a survey (a measured plan and scale drawing of the garden) can be conducted and produced by Sanders & Swift or by a sourced and recommended Surveyor.

2. Designs and mood boards

Two designs will be presented initially, plus supporting mood boards illustrating how your garden could look and feel, allowing you to choose the design option you feel is right for your garden.

The mood boards will show first suggestion images for planting, materials and overall style. At this point any required changes can be made, so that you feel completely happy with your new garden's design.

3. Landscaping, planting stock and materials

Once the design and/or planting plans have been agreed upon, we can source experienced landscapers local to your area—who can supply all hard landscaping materials, expertly build the agreed upon design and plant up your beautiful new outdoor space.

4. Planting Plans

Planting plans can deliver beautiful borders all year round, guaranteeing your garden always looks its best and takes the guesswork and risk out of which plants will not only look stunning but will thrive in your garden's soil and outdoor environment.

5. After care

On completion of each project, Sanders and Swift remains available to supply aftercare and advice on your garden and can recommend local gardeners should you require ongoing support with upkeep.

You will also receive information on each of the plants used in your design, with easy to follow directions on maintenance.
